Nanaimo Sunrisers
Serving the Children of the World








The Kiwanis Club of Nanaimo Sunrisers has served Nanaimo since 1984.

Our club is open to all who want to share their experience, knowledge, time and have a desire to help the children and people of Nanaimo.

We look for people who enjoy working with others on projects such as our annual Bullhead Derby for youngsters, fund-raising , the Xmas party for Special Needs children, a day at Departure Bay Waterpark with entertainment and free hotdogs and our BBQ for local Seniors. 

We can offer fun, work and fellowship.  And the personal rewards of helping those less fortunate.

Interested in joining us to help our community? For more information email us here .

We meet on the first and third Thursdays of the month at 8 am.  Last Thursday of the month is a lunch meeting. Please email us at nanaimo.sunrisers at for details.

We have many projects through the year, and appropriate speakers are invited to our meetings, but these are the dates for our major annual events planned for 2016:
