There was standing room only for the Oktoberfest presentation at the Delegates Meeting. Participants learned about the parade, the route, what to wear and what not to wear, and what to expect in the tents and on Monday at the Oide Wiesn. Those attending found it helpful to learn.

On the weekend of August 1-3, SV Edelweiß of Chicago will be celebrating their 100th Anniversary!
