Reminder to Members of Gau-Vereine Flag Committee

This is a reminder to the members of the Gau-Vereine Flag Committee about paying their 2018-2019 dues. Please send your $100 dues check (payable to Gau Vereine Flag Committee) to Paul Stanavage at 58 Melvin Drive, Leola, Pa. 17540. Official dues notices will be sent to the member Vereine by the end of January, but due to club Officer changes, sometimes it is hard to track down the proper contact in the member Vereine. There are currently 13 member Vereine in the committee.

Interested in Hosting a Gaufest? Here's How!

Has your Verein ever had an interest in hosting a Gaufest? Was the idea of being a Gaufest host something that your members kicked around over a Weißbier? Now may be a great time to think about that again. The Gauverband Meetings Committee is actively searching for a Verein (or Vereine) to serve as the host of the 2021 Gaufest. The Meetings Committee has a wealth of knowledge in preparing for a Gaufest and can assist with determining the feasibility of serving as the host, putting together the bid, and all planning for the big event.

Kulturzentrum Holzhausen: Doors have been installed!

I am happy to announce that the Schranktüren for the Gauverband Nordamerika Zimmer are installed. I received an email from Wolfgang Gensberger who is the Archivar for the Bayerischer Trachtenverband and Curator at the Trachtenkulturzentrum in Holzhausen that the doors are installed and ready for viewing. The only item left is installing the locks and hardware. Now when people stay in the room and take a tour through the Bildungshaus, they will see the doors proudly displayed to tell the story of the Trachtler in Nordamerika.
