Please consider volunteering and contact THANK YOU, STEPHEN HICKS! LADIES DIVISION NEWS Our talented decorator, Stephen, works tirelessly to enhance many occasions with the appropriate decoration. The “1948 New York Night” was outstanding, with everyone attending having to pass through the “border control” of “Officer” Hicks, and only then, admittance was granted. Of course, everyone was trying to dress in the style of those days long gone and the band put on a “really good show” – it was a fun evening! But, it does not stop here! Check out the Weinstube and view Stephen’s contributions of three stuffed animal heads high up on the wall! He not only donated them, but he also climbed on the tall ladder and hung them up, as well as the six small antlers which were donated by Rosmarie Geertsma, for which we say “thank you” also! Stephen, we gratefully appreciate your talent and dedication to keeping our Club deutsch! Thank you from the bottom of our heart! The Ladies Division will once again be holding their annual Flea Market at the August Sommerfest. This year, however, we will not be accepting donations until June 1st, no exceptions. As in the past, all donations should be clean, not broken and if there are parts to it, all parts should be included. The festival is August 9th. All donations must be brought in by August 2nd (one week before the festival). No donations will be accepted after that date to give the ladies a chance to price our treasures. Your adherence to the above would be very much appreciated. Thank you. 1st Vice President Carl Hagmueller or 2nd Vice President Eric Zabel at [email protected] DEUTSCHER CLUB GIFTS AND SOUVENIRS No need to wait for the festivals anymore!

The Foundation/Scholarship Committee has successfully selected a winner for our summer study in Germany. After serious discussion and evaluation, the committee has awarded this wonderful study program to Karin Glorius-Patrick, a senior at Watchung Hills Regional HS, the daughter of James and Annette. Annette is a parttime waitress at the DC, and comes for special affairs and very busy occasions. Karin is a super candidate for this award: she attended the Union Sprachschule for 10 years; danced as a Bavarian Folkdancer; is working on her Girl Scout Gold Award (equivalent to the boys Eagle Scout Award). At the High School, she took German up to German 4 and has been accepted at numerous colleges in the US, but would like to attend a German University, if accepted. From the applications which we received, she was our unanimous candidate and we are sure she will make us proud as a representative of the DC.
