The Hillsboro Kiwanis Club, a local of Kiwanis International and a club dedicated to service to community, was seeded and nurtured by three dedicated men fifty years ago and still thrives as one of Hillsboro's most active community service
organizations. It is said that "Kiwanis is not something you join, it's something you do!"
Also that first year, the quite ambitious President Scheller had a March of Dimes sidewalk event to raise funds for that cause. He was also the key man to sponsor the Washington County Dairy Princess contest, a natural for a dairy farmer. The club still sponsors that event.
