The West San Jose Kiwanis Club is in Division 12 of the Cal-Nev-Ha district of Kiwanis International. in part owes its' origin to the phenomenal growth and business expansion of Westside San Jose.
This rapid growth provided a fertile environment for the building of a new Kiwanis club there. With this in mind, a group of dedicated Santa Clara Kiwanis members, combined with the help of a group of business and professional men of the Beverly-Burbank area of West San Jose, met for the first time in March of 1955 and elected their first officers in early April.
We meet each Thurday morning at Denny's restaurant, 1140 Hillsdale Avenue in San Jose, starting promptly at 7:15AM and ending at 8:30AM. Each meeting includes breakfast and a short program from guest speakers around the community. There is no charge for visitors and no reservations are necessary. If you wish to see what we do please look over our current projects, or just drop by for breakfast!
