It is with heavy hearts that our club has lost our last remaining founding charter member and Hixson award winner Keith D. Zentner. 

Keith Don Zentner passed away unexpectedly on March 7, 2021 of natural causes. In the true Kiwanis spirit and in lieu of flowers, memorials may be sent to the Appleton Fox Cities Kiwanis Club with Keith's name in the memo line to 

Appleton Fox Cities Kiwanis Club
PO Box 62
Appleton, WI 54912

or through the Community Foundation for the Fox Valley Region, Inc earmarked to the "Appleton Fox Cities Kiwanis" 
While millions of sports enthusiasts watched the 55th annual ‘big game’ on television to mark the end of the football season, the Appleton Fox Cities Kiwanis club held a new fundraiser to add some soup to the tailgating spread.  Like many clubs, our fundraisers in 2020 were either cancelled, delayed or scaled down putting in jeopardy the financial support we provide our Kiwanis programs.  While the Green Bay Packers did not make it to the Super Bowl this year, our club brought the Soup-er Bowl to Wisconsin. 
We believe this is the responsible action to take in an effort to keep everyone safe during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The health and safety of our participants, volunteers, sponsors, and community remains our top priority.  We are extremely grateful for our Presenting Sponsor - North Shore Bank, to our Stage Sponsor - Octoberfest, and to our Silver Sponsors - Capital Credit Union and Michel’s Corp, and all of our supporters and participants during this challenging time and we look forward to seeing you all in 2022. 
 
Until then, please take care of yourself and each other.
When COVID-19 changed the face of community service in 2020, the Appleton-Fox Cities Kiwanis Club began looking for new projects that would fulfill the Kiwanis mission while providing social distancing and/or a virtual component. District Governor Jean Long Manteufel’s Kiwanis ‘n Cops ‘n Kids Governor’s project affords clubs the opportunity to perform pandemic-proof service.
Submitted by Jean Long Manteufel, 2020-2021 WI-UM Kiwanis District Governor 

As incoming governor of the Wisconsin-Upper Michigan Kiwanis District, I was looking for a different kind of Governor’s Project, one that we could do with all of our Kiwanis clubs. It needed to tick several boxes:
  • Something clubs can do when money is tight;
  • Something impactful in each Kiwanis community;
  • Something which serves children (of course);
  • Something which affords clubs the opportunity to do service safely, while social distancing; and
  • Something with is fun!
Here’s a riddle: What program, conceived and inaugurated in 2009, turned 40 this year? The answer: Old Glory Honor Flight. That’s right, this program, which offers WWII, Korean War and Viet Nam veterans a memorable, safe and rewarding tour of our nation’s capital and the monuments erected in their honor, flew its 40th mission on June 7, and arrived back at the Appleton International Airport to a tumultuous welcome home!
Kiwanis International is a global community of clubs, members and partners dedicated to improving the lives of children one community at a time. Each community has different needs, and Kiwanis empowers members to pursue creative ways to serve the needs of children, such as fighting hunger, improving literacy and offering guidance.
