The festivities on Saturday, May 2, will start with a church service in the inner courtyard of the complex and continue all day and Sunday.

The news of the sudden, tragic deaths of Marie and Jerry Hugel of GTEV Schlierachtaler Stamm has traveled quickly through the German community. They have been an integral part of the Gauverband since its founding, and it is hard to think of our organization without them. Marie and Jerry loved their Bavarian heritage and were regular visitors to the clubs on the east coast, at every Gaufest, and at major events all over the country and in Bavaria. Their enthusiastic attendance at the München Oktoberfest last year, riding in the horse drawn coach, will stay in our memories.

On behalf of the Gauverband, my condolences to Gaubeisitzer Bob Hugel and his entire family on the tragic passing of his parents, Jerry and Marie Hugel, on Friday, April 10. Both were key members of their Verein, GTEV Schlierachtaler Stamm, New York. In addition, Marie had served on the Gauverband's Ausschuß as both a Beisitzer and Vortänzerin. Ruhe in Frieden. (As more information becomes available, this post will be updated.)
