Saying goodbye to Mike Billo 

Our wonderful, long-time members Marianne Billo and Christina Billo Winquest are mourning the loss of their son and brother, Mike Billo.  Although Mike was never an Edelweiss member, we all got to know him because he and his beautiful family were often at our events.  And, of course, we have all followed his 15-year battle against a brain tumor.  Our hearts go out to Marianne and Christina as well as the rest of the family members who loved Mike.  The family has invited their Edelweiss family to come to the memorial service: 

  • Saturday, April 13, 2019, Memorial Mass - 10:00am (in state at 9:30am): St. Isaac Jogues Catholic Church, 21100 Madison Street, St. Clair Shores, MI 48081
  • Luncheon following to celebrate his life from 12-5 pm at: Fraternal Order of Eagles 23631 Greater Mack Ave, St. Clair Shores, MI 48080

Ruhe in Frieden

2019 Events Calendar Updated 

The "fridge" edition of the Edelweiss calendar has been updated to include a couple of added events.  These are -- June 1, Schuhplattler Tanz with BSC Holzhacker Buam in Toledo (Siasswasser is playing!); August 18 -- Club Picnic at Spindler Park.  The May 18 Maifest with the Isartaler in Pittsburgh is a firm date now.  Dance practice start time for non-meeting days has been changed to 11 am.  Our email address has also changed. (If you use the "Contacts" on the website, you'll automatically get the right email address.)  To download the 2019 schedule, click on the first item under "Newsletters" on the right hand column.  Will it change again?  Ha!  What do you think?

Irish? Bayrisch? Spend the Day with Us! 

Sunday, March 17, is St. Patrick's Day, favorite day of the Irish and the Irish-Wannabes. But YOU can come spend the day with the Bayrisch! It's Edelweiss's dance practice and general meeting day. There will be fun and beer (hmmm, probably not green though) and friends. Come to the GACC room at the Carpathia Club and see what we're all about.

To those going to the Gaufest, bring along your check made out to GTEV Edelweiss to pay for your tickets ($225 per person). 

Carpathia Hall -- 38000 Utica Rd, Sterling Heights, MI 48312.  Practice as 12:30; meeting at 3.
