For individuals and families, joining the Germania Club is an opportunity to belong to the type of traditional German-American social and cultural organization that was common in our parents or grandparents time.
Organizations such as the Germania Club Downriver have traditionally been a central part of the social fabric for families in Detroit's German-American community.
Many people associate German social life with renown festivals such as Karneval and Oktoberfest and the great celebrations that are part of those events. However, besides being a great way to enjoy the camaraderie and good times, joining the Germania Club also presents an opportunity to introduce the next generation to the solid foundations of the "German work ethic", and commitment to community and family. Our events year-round are ones that you and your family will remember, and the friends you meet at the Germania Club will be friends indeed.
Membership is by application. During our current membership drive we have 'open' application, though normally, prospective members must be sponsored by an existing member.
To apply for membership, simply fill out an application and submit it with payment as indicated below.
Under age 65 -- $25 per year with a one-time $10 administrative fee
Age 65 and over -- $20 per year with a one-time $10 administrative fee
Membership benefits include:
Invitation to all Holiday gatherings throughout the year such as:
- Christmas & New Year's Celebrations
- The Bock Beer Festival in March
- Easter festivities and the annual children's Easter Egg Hunt
- Summer Picnics and Festivals
- Our annual German Fest
- Karneval Festivals which span over a 3 month period every year ... and other events such as the Potato Pancake Dinners ... and much more.
A popular Club event is our weekly Wednesday Dinner which includes live music and a cash bar ... usually followed by some air-rifle shooting with members of our "Schießengruppe" or Shooting-group. (Note: This shooting is with high-powered and expensive, modern air rifles. For shooting -- adults, and children over 12 accompanied by an adult only, please.)
Additionally, throughout the year members attend social get-togethers at other German Clubs in the Detroit metropolitan area, and occasionally at the Dakota Inn Rathskellar - one of the few traditional full service German Restaurant/Rathskellar/Biergartens still in operation.
Club Membership also brings you our newsletter; access to our German Heritage Library; the opportunity to contribute to the Club, its organization and operation; and its groups and auxiliaries.
It is friends. It is family. I don't think you'll find a better membership value anywhere.
For further membership information or to obtain or submit an application you may contact our membership chairman at the club; OR simply join us for our regular Wednesday Dinner or any event which is open to the public, and an club officer will be happy to provide you with an application.
We look forward to seeing you!
