But Let's REMEMBER LAST YEAR: November 22, 2014 for the 32nd Turkey Roll Bicycle Rally:
Turkey Roll Riders Unflapped by Cold Weather! Denton Record Chronicle.
The 2014 Turkey Roll is history, but the good news keeps coming in. Over 600 signed up... however the weather kept our numbers down to 220 very tuff riders! Our 5 NEW Bill Utter Truck Sag wagons got lots of use, as riders succumbed to the Tough Turkey Roll conditions. In spite of the "foul" conditions, we still managed to raised OVER $9,000 for our charities. Thanks for your support!
Pancake Supper, Entertainment & Silent Auction--April 10, 2015 (14th Annual)

The 2015 Pancake Supper & Silent Auction raised OVER $15,000 for Apple Tree Back-to-School Project and help to supply first-day school supplies (backpacks, shoes, clothing, essential first supplies) for 1,500+ children. In addition we raised $10,000 for the Kiwanis Eliminate Project (see above).

Our Club's Mission
"Serving the Children of the World"
Old motto: "We Build"
The Denton Breakfast Kiwanis (DBK) Club spun off from the Denton Noon Club in 1960 to provide a more convenient meeting time for our early rising members. The Club consistently holds its membership at between 40 and 50 members--permitting us to be more both more personal and flexible than some larger clubs, yet still capable of significant service initiatives. The Objects of Kiwanis may be read here.
DBK is part of Kiwanis International, which was founded in 1915 in Detroit, Michigan. With headquarters now in Indianapolis, Kiwanis International has more than 300,000 members in 8,600 clubs in 92 countries. We make our mark by responding to the needs of our communities and pooling our resources to address or eliminate worldwide diseases, such as Maternal & Neo-Natal Tetanus (MNT) & Iodine Deficiency Disorder (IDD) (video). You are never far from a fellow Kiwanian and you are always welcome to attend any Kiwanis Club meeting on the planet (See: Kiwanis International)
