Kiwanis: Serving the Germantown Community

U.S. Bank’s Taste of Germantown


Even high winds and a thunderstorm couldn’t dampen the enthusiasm here in Firemen’s Park on Thursday, July 21, 2016, during the annual Kiwanis community party. The U.S. Bank sponsored Taste of Germantown was a summer’s evening filled with fun, fine cuisine,  enthusiastic music and good spirits. It was enjoyed by Germantown residents of all ages, as children’s workshops and a Pokémon Go party held the attention of the younger picknickers while the adults were entertained by a softball tournament, four local music groups and the Germantown Poms.


Vendors at the event included: BuBs Irish Pub, Aldo’s Pizza & Pub, Nardo’s Passport Inn, Robert’s Frozen Custard, Grinderville, La Cabana Mexican Grill, Buddha’s BBQ and Wisconsin Fried Cheese Curds.


The Germantown Kiwanis started this event two years ago to promote their project to construct the Gehl Foods Performing Arts Pavillion in Firemen’s Park. All proceeds from Taste of Germantown will go toward the building of the Pavillion. Germantown supporters are invited to review the information on the Pavillion and see the rendering of what it will look like. Information about donating to this worthwhile project is available.

What Is Kiwanis?

Germantown, Wisconsin Kiwanis

Germantown Kiwanis has been serving the community for over 29 years. Its volunteers have raised funds to give back to the community and to help support Germantown youth with leadership programs in the Germantown schools at the elementary level with K-Kids, middle school level with Builder’s Club and high school level with Key Club. These clubs all help kids learn about the value of volunteerism in the community. In addition, Kiwanis awards educational scholarships; sponsors youth sports teams, works with the PTA to offer education grants to help teachers develop special educational programs in the classroom and other volunteer work to support youth and the community. To support these activities, Kiwanis organizes a number of fund-raising events including the Germantown July 4th Festivities, the Taste of Germantown events and the project to build the Gehl Foods Performing Arts Pavillion in Firemens Park.

The Kiwanis Club of Germantown, Wisconsin is proud to support youth in our community. We are a proud group of community volunteers comprised of individuals from a wide array of backgrounds. Some of our members volunteer as individuals, parents, educators, civic leaders, or business owners. Anyone who is interested in making Germantown a better place to live is welcome to join us!


General weekly meetings are held at 7:30 am every Wednesday at Aldo’s Pizza in Germantown. General weekly meetings are often times informal, but a great time to discuss pressing needs of the group or simply to gain fellowship and learn more about our fellow Kiwanians and happenings in the community. If you are interested in joining or just want to learn more about Kiwanis, feel free to stop in.
