Upcoming events


Seventy-Five years ago, Needham residents established The Exchange Club of Needham. The stated purpose was to exemplify the real meaning of "Unity for Service."

The Club’s women and men are proud of the 75 years of service they have provided to Needham. As most Needhamites know, the Exchange Club raises all of the money and provides all of the events for Needham’s 4th of July including the fireworks and parade. Town government helps in many ways, but the Club carries virtually all the costs.

Over the years the club has made many improvements to the Town, including construction of the gazebo, the tot lots at DeFazio and Claxton Fields, repair of park benches throughout the town, and clean up of school playgrounds and green space as well as work on the trails in the Town Forest, to name just a few.

Who is the Needham Exchange Club?

As a member of America's National Service Organization, the Needham Exchange Club has been serving Needham since 1947.

All proceeds from our fund raisers go directly back into the Town of Needham by way of our many projects and events that reach out to every member of our community.

The Needham Exchange Club meets on the first and the third Thursday of the month, September through June.  Meetings include socializing, dinner and a speaker on a topic of general interest.

Membership in the Needham Exchange Club is open to anyone with an interest both in Needham and community service.
