Kiwanis Club of Tellico Village, Loudon


A Brief History of Our Club…

We began with 34 charter members on March 16, 1999. Membership dwindled to a low of 25 within six months.  The remaining active members worked to re-energize and build a solid Club. Twelve months later the membership had increased to 40 active members. 

Our club celebrated 20 years of service March 16, 2019.

We have sponsored three new Kiwanis clubs: Farragut, TN; Vonore, TN; and the third in Lenoir City, TN.  We organized and continue to sponsor a Key Club at Loudon High School.

The Kiwanis Club of Tellico Village has succeeded in attaining the Distinguished Club Award every year of its existence. It boasts having many Kiwanis International Hixon Fellows, Distinguished Presidents, Lieutenant Governors, and one District Governor.

We are established as a “can do” club whose energies, considerable talents, and experience base are dedicated to serving, with pride, the young people and the general community, as well as to promoting overall Kiwanis International objectives.   

Serving the children of the world. Making a difference in lives of children! One child and one community at a time! Click on the link below to learn more about the Kiwanis Club of TV.




Our Kiwanis club participates in a variety of projects throughout the year that involve fundraising, community service, and assisting children locally and worldwide. Additionally, we have speakers at our bi-weekly meetings to explore topics of interest to the membership. We engage in a number of social activities to share experiences, talents and our collective interests. All represent great opportunities for service, friendships and personal growth.

Amtryke Therapeutic Tricycle Project

Since 2010, The Amtryke Program is one of our club’s signature projects. An Amtryke is a specifically designed tricycle created to match the special needs of a child with physical or mental challenges. As of January 2020, our club has presented 73 tricycles valued at about $37,000 to children age 18 and younger who are courageously living with disabilities affecting their motor skills and strength. 

 Amtrykes are all about abilities, focusing on what children can do, not what they can’t do!




Back To School Program


Our club arranges an annual event where 50 area school children each receive a $100 certificate to spend at a local retailer for new clothes for the upcoming school year. Held in collaboration with the Family Resource Centers of the Lenoir City and Loudon County schools, the event is underwritten through a generous donation from a local corporation.


 PACT (Parents As Children’s Teachers)


This program brings the school library to the kindergarten classes at Lenoir City Elementary School. Once a week a cart stocked with library books is placed outside each classroom door.  A Kiwanis member is assigned to each cart and serves as the “librarian”.  Prior to the school start each child is permitted to search for a book, take the library card out of the pocket and hand it to the Kiwanis volunteer. The member records name and date of the child.  The child’s teacher provides a folder for the child to take home. The folder contains suggestions for the parent as they read the book to their child. The child returns the book with the parents’ signature to school.


 Trout In The Classroom

We provide financial and manpower support for this environmental education program. Students in grades K-12 raise trout from eggs to fry, monitor tank water quality, study stream habitat, begin to foster a conservation ethic, learn to appreciate water resources and to understand ecosystems.  In the fall we receive trout eggs from a local fish hatchery.  Fish are fed daily and the aquarium and the water quality are maintained weekly.  In the spring, on a school sponsored field trip, the trout are released in a state-approved stream or river.  As you would expect, students are simply fascinated with the hatching process.

Seven organizations operating independently, each accomplishing their organizational missions, can do a lot of good for the community. But when they band together to help each other accomplish those same missions, the synergy generated by those relationship magnifies the impact each can have. This is exactly the mission of the newly formed Tellico Working Together Group. The Kiwanis Club of Tellico Village is a proud member of this unique group.

The seven member Tellico Village organizations, four service clubs and three churches, include the Lions, Kiwanis, Rotary, the Women’s Club (GFWC), the Community Church, the First Baptist Church and the Shepherd of the Lake Lutheran Church. Collectively their membership represents a significant percentage of the population of Tellico Village. Each has a different mission focus area. For the Kiwanis it is children; The Lions, vision and sight, The Rotary is schools and dental health; The Women’s club focuses on social issues affecting women and families in the community; and the three churches on serving the spiritual needs of their congregants as well as filling unmet needs in various social and economic areas in Loudon County. Click here to learn more.....



Kids are curious, lovable and hilarious.

They are also wild, impatient and vulnerable.
