Exciting news came out of our Annual Meeting this past week! During this year’s elections, we selected AnnMarie Mittelbuscher to be our Verein’s first Jugendleiterin (Youth Leader). She will direct the activities of our growing group of children in the club, teaching them songs and games designed to increase their knowledge Bavarian culture and language, as well as organizing fun outings. Congratulations AnnMarie!!
Thanksgiving is one of the greatest holidays we have here in America. All persons, regardless of age, gender, race, etc., are together with their family and friends enjoying a sumptuous feast. Let us all be thankful for the blessings in our lives and remember those who are far away and not able to be with us today.
Have you ever been plagued by any of these questions:
"What does the word Trachtler mean?”
"Where do I get a pair of those really cool Lederhosen?"
"I have German heritage, but don’t anything about the culture. Where can I go to learn more??"
These questions and more can be answered during Golden Gate’s Open House on November 13! No obligation, no pressure. Just fun.
Where: Alameda Elks Lodge, 2255 Santa Clara Ave., Alameda
