James Pittelkow, Pittelkow Financial Services, LLC
Kiwanis: When did you join Kiwanis?
James: I joined Kiwanis 26 years ago in October 1989.
Kiwanis: Why did you become a member?
James: I became a member because I was active in a smaller service club, had gone through all the leadership chairs including State Governor and international committees, and I wanted to be involved in a larger club. Two Kiwanis Members (who are still Members today) sponsored me.
Kiwanis: What keeps you coming back?
James: The mission of helping children and the community in general. Interesting lunch programs are also critical.
Kiwanis: Tell us about your favorite service project.
James: There are several. Ironically, I am involved in mostly non-children projects, such as Environmental, Human and Spiritual Values, and Public & Business Affairs. However, I admire the childrens' issues as the most important mission.
Kiwanis: What would you tell someone who is considering becoming a member?
James: Kiwanis Club of Milwaukee is an excellent venue for giving back to the community. Volunteering is key to peace of mind and personal satisfaction. Try it!
Kiwanis: Thank you, James.
