4th of July

Every year the Needham Exchange Club provides Needham’s
4th of July Celebration
at no cost to the Town or its taxpayers. All the funds we spend are raised from your contributions, the support of local businesses and the hard work of the 100 men and women of the Needham Exchange Club.

All the money raised for the Parade and Fireworks are spent solely on the celebrations.

Please help support Needham’s Signature Event!

Welcome to the Needham Exchange Club’s website.


The Exchange Club has a long standing commitment to Needham, and the goals of our Club are reflected in our Mission Statement. Founded 70 years ago as a service club to promote patriotism and provide community service, the Exchange Club continues to serve the youth, seniors and families of Needham. While our signature project is the 4th of July Celebration at Memorial Park, other areas of service that we sponsor are the Local Child Assault Prevention Program (CAPP), the Book of Golden Deeds Award, and Scholarships awarded to outstanding students.


The Exchange Club is always looking for new members who would like to be part of a dynamic service organization. Please contact us if you would like more information about the club, or if you would like to speak with a member about joining the Exchange.


Best Regards,


Michael Taggart
