About Siloam Springs
Siloam Springs has a population of just over 15,000 and is located in the Ozarks region of the United States. It is in the far northwest corner of Arkansas on the border with Oklahoma and about 30 miles from Fayetteville.Siloam Springs is known for its spirit of volunteerism and natural beauty. The pristine, physical setting of the downtown is a feature element. Scenic Sager Creek with its rock wall-lined banks flows through the downtown. Shaded by stately trees and decorated with dogwoods, showcase parks embrace the creek. Fountains, foot bridges, greens space, gazebos and even duck crossings compel visitors to relax and enjoy their surroundings. Named by Smithsonian.com as one of the 20 Best Small Towns in America (May 2012).

Kiwanis is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to changing the world, one child and one community at a time.
Kiwanis attempts to improve the quality of life of children and youth two ways: directly through activities promoting health, education, etc. and encouragement of leadership and service among youth. In pursuit of the latter goal, Kiwanis sponsors about 7,000 youth service clubs with nearly 320,000 youth members.
As a global project in coordination with UNICEF, members and clubs contributed more than $80 million toward the global elimination of iodine deficiency disorders (IDD), the leading preventable cause of mental retardation. Beginning in 2010 Kiwanis International once again joined with UNICEFto launch a new worldwide health initiative, dedicated to wiping out maternal and neonatal tetanus (MNT), which kills more than 60,000 babies and a significant number of women each year.In 2007, the charitable financial arm, Kiwanis International Foundation, was awarded the top rating by an independent evaluator
