Welcome!

The Columbia River Gorge Kiwanis Club of Corbett, Oregon came into existence on October 1963. In 2013, we celebrated serving our community for 50 years. The early members of the club mostly came from the Corbett area. As the years progressed the club has evolved into a membership of people from all over the West Columbia Gorge: from Corbett to Oregon City and all parts in between. The friendly personality of the club is such that people who visit easily fit in. There is no stranger -- ever! Of course, this is what we are finding throughout the Kiwanis world.

The Board of Directors has continually upheld the primary goal of supporting the Corbett community in many ways, which include:
  • Sponsors of Scout Troop 272 and Cub Pack 272
  • Sponsors of Corbett High School Key Club
  • Adopt-a-Highway (Mershon Road and the Historic Columbia River Highway below Vista House)
  • Annual Scholarship Pancake Breakfast every July 4th (all net proceeds benefit Corbett High School graduating seniors)
  • Annual Veterans Pancake Breakfast held at Corbett High School multipurpose room

The community at large also benefits from our service and fundraising projects. These include:

  • Snow-Cap  -- My Sister's House -- Habitat for Humanity
  • Tarahumara Children's Hospital Fund -- Good News Community Health Center
  • Pacific NW Outreach Ministries  -- Daybreak Shelter, Human Solutions
  • Kiwanis Doernbecher Children's Cancer Program -- PNW Kiwanis Foundation
  • Kiwanis International Foundation  -- Kiwanis Children's Cancer Program
  • Charis Ridge Home for Boys/Youth Guidance Association

Whether you are visiting from another club or looking for a club to belong to, we welcome you!
