Welcome to the Kiwanis Club of Fort Myers Gateway To The Islands

The Kiwanis Club of Fort Myers Gateway To The Islands was chartered on September 9th, 2008 by then Lt. Governor Terry Luster and his wife, Viki Luster.

The club is comprised of professional women and men, working and retired, who generally work and/or live in the south Fort Myers area of Lee County.

Our club mixes fun and fellowship while taking seriously the Kiwanis defining statement of improving the world one child and one community at a time. We do this by developing fellowship, networking, education, leadership and community service opportunities for our members. Our goal is to better our community through varied hands-on projects, with special emphasis on child development, safety and youth leadership training through service.


The club meets every Tuesday at 7:30 AM for breakfast, fellowship, education and a guest speaker. There is no minimum attendance requirement - we just ask that members attend whenever they can . . . READ MORE

Community Service

The heart of our club is community service. Volunteer opportunities are available every month. No one is expected to participate in every project, but most members will find at least two or three or more during the year . . . READ MORE
