Germantown Celebrates the 4th of July


The 4th of July is America’s Birthday, a celebration of our Independence. And here in Germantown we do it up BIG! The Germantown Kiwanis Club puts on the 4th of July Celebration including the parade, picnic in Firemen’s Park and the fireworks. It was a great party. Thanks to John Gehl and the entire Gehl Family for leading the parade.

What Is Kiwanis?

Kiwanis is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to changing the world, one child and one community at a time. Kiwanians are volunteers changing the world through service to children and communities.

There are over 8,000 clubs in 96 countries with more than 260,000 adult members and approximately 320,000 youth.

Germantown, Wisconsin Kiwanis

Germantown Kiwanis has been serving the community for over 25 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 and a booth at Mai Fest.

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.

If you or someone you know is interested in speaking at a Kiwanis Club meeting, please contact us at (262) 424-4457.

Meeting attendance is not mandatory for members, but is encouraged for all members.

If you are interested in learning more about our group, you are always welcome to attend any meeting!
