The Kiwanis Club of Delphos was chartered in April 1963 by D. E. Hayes, Harold Harpster, Gerald Fischer, Richart Vogt and Ed Clark.

In the spring of 1963, gas was 29 cents, JFK was president, the average home cost $12,650, a loaf of bread was 22 cents and on April 30, 1963, the Delphos Kiwanis Club charter was penned. Ohio District Governor Craig Wallace noted these historical facts as he congratulated the local service organization on its 50th anniversary on April 24, 2013. “You have changed your community,” Wallace said addressing the 35 club members in attendance.
