Billy-Mann

The Kiwanis Club of Toledo has been serving the Toledo community since 1916. The Club is an active service organization with the mission of “working together to serve the youth of central Toledo.”  They meet weekly on Wednesdays at the Toledo Club to share lunch, enjoy a speaker, and plan projects to work toward their mission of serving youth. 

Billy Mann will be elected as the Club’s 52nd President, and the only third generation president in the history of the local organization and perhaps in all of Kiwanis International. Charles Mann III joined the Kiwanis Club of Toledo in 1962 and was president in 1982. His son, Richard Mann joined the Club in 1990 and was President in 1999.  William (Billy) Mann will carry on as a third generation President and during his tenure will finalize the Club’s Centennial Project, a collaborative partnership between the Toledo Mud Hens and the Club, supporting the construction of new playground equipment at Fifth Third Field and initiating a new tradition with a Mud Hens Game Day for central city children.
