Who the Dawn Busters Are The Dawn Busters Kiwanis Club is the best Kiwanis Club in the world. Formally called the Metairie Kiwanis Dawn Busters, we were chartered in 1973 as the first club to meet over breakfast. We have over 80 members who volunteer regularly. Since Katrina, we have found the needs in our community even more apparent and are striving to help. Karnofsky Project Katrina Remediation House Gutting
Service Projects Wheelchair Ramp Boo at the Zoo The Dawn Busters do various service projects in the community. We strive to do hands-on service to help children, elderly, and the less fortunate. We work with sponsored programs at high schools who do their own projects. We have several fundraisers to help pay for it all. Fishing Rodeo St Michaels Fundraiser Habitat for Humanity
