Welcome to the Kiwanis Club of Berwyn

Kiwanian to be Honored with Teeter Award

Our very own Lucile Evans is the 2018 recipient of the Robert W. Teeter award, which has been given annually since 1977 to an outstanding community leader in Berwyn.  The award is named for Robert W. Teeter, a civic-minded early citizen of Berwyn who had a long and illustrious record of service to this community (which included founding the Kiwanis Club of Berwyn in 1923 and writing the lyrics to When Kiwanis Calls!).  Lucile will be the 13th member of our club to be accorded this honor since its inception.

The Teeter Award Celebration honoring Lucile will be May 11, 2018, at Skylite West Banquets, 7117 Ogden in Berwyn.  Tickets for the banquet, which benefits the Pav YMCA's programs and services,  are $75 per person and can be purchased at the Pav YMCA, 2947 Oak Park Avenue in Berwyn. 

For more information on the banquet or to request tickets, contact J.R. Anderson at the YMCA, email: ganderson@pavymca.org, phone: 708-749-0606, ext. 318.

We heartily congratulate Lucile on this well-deserved honor.   See here for more about this extraordinary woman's lifetime of devotion and service to her beloved hometown.

What Have We Been Up To?

Fundraisers like our Pancake Breakfast and Steak Fry allow us to support a variety of programs that benefit children and adults in Berwyn and beyond.  In the last 12 months, we've been busy with both service and donations.  Club members

  • sponsored and attended Berwyn’s Sailors for Christmas program, which hosts recruits from Great Lakes Naval Station
  • supported the Cicero-Berwyn food pantry
  • sponsored events with the Berwyn Park District for Berwyn children
  • sponsored the Books for Babies Program with the Berwyn Health Department

and donated to many Berwyn organizations. If you'd like to pitch in, check out our Join or Volunteer! page, or stop by at one of our meetings for more information.
