Edelweiss Picnic - Sunday, Aug. 18 

Yup, it's that time again -- our annual members & friends picnic.  Come to Spindler Park in Eastpointe on Sunday at 2 pm and join in the fun.  We've been here twice already -- look for us in a pavilion not far from the rest rooms.  Bring a dish to share; Edelweiss provides the Wurst, beer, soft drinks, water, and utinsels. Cost is $10/person. Your Edelweiss friends, some with musical instruments, will be there for an enjoyable afternoon.  If you did not let Annette know you were coming, please do so right away (248.840.1953).  We want to make sure everyone is well fed.  See you Sunday!

Spindler Park, 19400 Stephens Dr, Eastpointe.  Park entry is off Stephens, which is off Kelly Road between 9 and 10 Mile Roads.

GACC Deutscher Tag, Sunday, Aug. 11 

Who loves hanging out with friends, sitting under a canopy of evergreens, eating good food, drinking good beer, and listening to happy music?  You?  Then you should come to GACC's Deutscher Tag Picnic on Sunday, August 11!

All of the member clubs in the German-American Cultural Center take part in this family friendly event at the Austrian Park.  It's only $3 to get into the beautiful park at 56200 Hayes Road, Macomb.  Edelweiss's own Siasswasser Tanzlmusi is playing from 12-3 pm, and the Edelweiss dancers will perform at 4:45 and 5:45.  The parade of flags is at 3 pm, followed by music by Tommy Schober and the Sorgenbrecher.

So don't sit home Sunday -- come and spend it having a great time with friends old and new!

Edelweiss Wins at the Gaufest! 

The 19 members who attended the 27. Gaufest in Washington, D.C., are back home.  We're proud of our big winner -- Barb Rauschendorfer!  She will reign as Schafkopfkönigen after winning the tournament. She gets to keep the Wanderpreis for two years.  You'll see a picture of it in the next Wegweiser.  Congratulations, Barb!  She did our Verein proud. Her teacher, Caroline Schaefer, is probably beaming. The late Aunt Caroline was serious about her game, and Barb learned from the best.

June 2 -- Membership Meeting & Dance Practice
