Edelweiss Westchester in New York recently attended the 100th anniversary of D’Chiemgauer Grabenstätt in Bayern. The Bayerischer Trachtenverband’s website has a nice article with several pictures about the visit. The two clubs have maintained a friendship for the 80 years of Edelweiss’s existence, and sixty members of Edelweiss made the trip. Gau-Ehrenkassier William Hubner and wife Linda (both of Gemuetlichen Enzianer NY) were also there and represented Gau-NA.
