A Brief History...
In September of 1990, Gordon Young was
contacted by Cindy Smith-Lewis (Executive Director of
the SMF Chamber of Commerce) in regards to forming a new
Kiwanis Club in the city of Stow. An exploratory
meeting was arranged of Division 20 heads and it was
determined that a new Kiwanis Club would be organized
with the Kent Club as Sponsor.
The club had commitments from 25
people who became the charter members on May 1, 1991,
with Gordon as the club's first president.
