The Cyclone Country AKTION Club has as its mission to be a community service club for adults living with disabilities. AKTION clubs are a sponsored learning program within the family of Kiwanis Clubs thru Kiwanis International. The club allows its members to develop initiative and leadership skills in serving the Ames community while enabling its members to integrate into society. The Cyclone Country AKTION club is sponsored by the three local Ames Kiwanis Clubs; Ames Golden K Kiwanis Club, Ames Noon Kiwanis Club, and Ames Town and Country Kiwanis Club. The AKTION Club plans its own community service programs and has been actively involved in food collection drives, Kiwanis Pancake Days, assisting with TEEN MAZE, Miracle League Park, and many other projects. Current membership is 15 members. Meetings are held twice a month with a program planned by the club members, their officers, and sponsors.
