Auf Geht's nach Toledo! 

For the third year in a row, we'll be roadtripping to Toledo to spend the day with our Patenkind D'Holzhackerbuam of the Bavarian Sports Club. Arrival time at the BSC is 11 am to enjoy a delicious Frühschoppen. After we're all full of good food and drink, it'll be time to have fun dancing (great wooden dance floor), playing music, singing, and socializing together. Wear your Boarisch Gwand and dancing shoes.  Friends from our other Patenkind, Chiemgau Windsor, will be attending, as will the Gauverband's 2. Gauvorplattler Rudy Leschke and his wife Cathy.  With so many enthusiastic Trachtler and friends, it's sure to be another really great afternoon.  See you there! 

If you haven't already let Eric Walker know you're attending, please do so right away so we have an accurate count.

Election Meeting -- Sunday, January 14! 

Happy New Year to members and friends!  Sunday, January 14, marks the first dance practice and membership meeting of the year.  It's also the day we hold our elections for dance officers and club officers. There's plenty to do and the more workers, the lighter the load for each.  Don't be shy.  Of course, voters are valuable, too.  So be sure to venture out to the meeting (it's always warm in the meeting room, no matter how blustery it is outside!) and have your voice heard.  See you soon!

Remembering Don Schultz 1952-2017 

We are sad to say that another long time member of Edelweiss has passed away.  Don Schultz passed away on November 15.  Anyone who knew Don would most likely describe him as "quite a character."  He was fun loving and worked hard within Edelweiss at the many large functions we had in the past.  Don was awarded the Golden Edelweiss for his contributions to our Verein.  He was just 64 years old when he passed away.

His memorial service will be held on what would have been his 65th birthday on Sunday, Dec. 3, at 1 pm at Sullivan & Son Funeral Home, 8459 Hall Road, Utica.  Our condolences go out to Don's family and friends.

Here is the link to the obituary at the Funeral Home website.
