The August 13th, 1920 edition of the "Portland Evening Express," chronicled the second annual outing of the Portland Kiwanis Club. Members enjoyed a clambake..."a real old fashioned one, on the banks of the Scarboro River..." At the event, men participated in games and listened to Chandler's Military Band, before driving to Old Orchard Beach to ride in Captain Harry Jones' biplane.

The Portland Kiwanis Club was founded as a men's service club in 1917.
