THE GOLDEN RULE — Shining support from the Petaluma Kiwanis Club

One of the central tenets of the international Kiwanis Club is applying the Golden Rule: do unto others as you would have them do unto you.

So it’s especially appropriate that the local Petaluma Kiwanis Club has been a Gold Sponsor of the Creator Faire for the past two years — and will join us once again in sponsoring the January 26, 2019 event!

Every Kiwanis club is given the freedom to choose projects to support that best meet the needs of the children in their local community. In Petaluma, our local chapter believes deeply in the value of providing the community’s children with opportunities to work, play, and grow together — a great fit for the mission of the Creator Faire.


Chartered in 1954, the Petaluma Kiwanis Club donates about $80,000 every year to education scholarships, community projects and non-profit organizations like the River Montessori Foundation. They also have their own service projects and are proud sponsors of student clubs and projects at many other local schools.

Around the world, Kiwanis members stage approximately 150,000 service projects and raise nearly $100 million every year for communities, families and projects. Talk about a commitment to our children!

Learn more about this supportive organization by visiting their website or their Facebook page — or jump right in and join one of their many meetings as an honored guest. Meetings are held every Tuesday at noon at the Boulevard Café & Grill in Petaluma, except the 4th week of every month, which is a 6:00PM Wednesday dinner at the same location.

Thank you, Petaluma Kiwanis Club, for you continued support!!!

New Bronze Sponsor

One of Pediatric Dentistry Raymond A. Ramos, D.S.S and Associates’s main goals is to help all children feel good about visiting the dentist and teach them how to care for their teeth.

With this goal in mind, this local favorite kid’s dentist is returning to the 2018 Creator Faire, not only to host a hands-on Creator Station, but also contribute financially as a Bronze Sponsor!

Thank you for your generosity and continued support! We look forward to watching our community learn to floss — with a crafty twist.

Gold Sponsor ~ Kiwanis!!!!!

We are thrilled to thank and welcome back for the 2nd year as our top event sponsor, The Petaluma Kiwanis Club!

The Petaluma Kiwanis Club, which was chartered in 1954, focuses on changing the world by serving children, one child and one community at a time. Service is at the heart of every Kiwanis Club and the Petaluma Kiwanis are no exception.

Each year, the Petaluma Kiwanis Club donates about $80,000 to education scholarships, community projects and non-profits organizations just like the River Montessori Foundation. They also have their own service projects and are proud sponsors of student clubs and projects at the many local schools.

By working together, members achieve what one person cannot accomplish alone. Kiwanis believe, when you give a child the chance to learn, experience, dream, grow, succeed and thrive, GREAT things happen!

We believe this too!

The Creator Faire is about bringing the whole community together to provide our children an opportunity to experience hands-on art and sciences in a fun and safe environment.

We are thrilled to thank, partner with and welcome back, for the 2nd year in a row, the Petaluma Kiwanis Club, as the Creator Faire’s top supporter, the Gold Sponsor!
