August Political Pub Night
Hot politics and cold beer smack in the middle of Stuttgart!
Here is another great chance for brand new and prospective DA members to get to know us a bit, for long-time members to re-engage, and for all of us to jump in to the on-going discussion on how to mobilize the resistance in our region.
This is also your last chance to participate in our DA Resistance Summer postcard Action.
As always, your non-American friends and family are welcome to join in the fun!
Please do RSVP to let us know you are coming!
Join us for an evening of drinks and good company. This will be our Chapter's first official pub night, and we hope for it to become a lasting tradition. There is an "entry fee": complete one postcard to a legislator on a current topic of importance.
In lieu of the Wiesbaden / Mainz August Meeting we will meet at the Rheingauer Weinwoche for an evening of wine tasting and "light" political discussions"
We'll meet an hour earlier - 6 p.m. - in front of the regular meeting restaurant, the Andechser im Ratskeller http://derandechser-wiesbaden.de/
Help make plans for our Freiburg/Konstanz Precinct!
Join us again in Konstanz for a political get-together at the home of chapter member Dana Rufolo who happily offers it as a meeting place.
We will continue our discussion of the US political situation and talk about ways we can engage and make a difference.
We look forward to a fun and productive afternoon! RSVP to receive the address location.
Most of us don't have Labor Day off here, so we will be getting together on the Sunday of Labor Day Weekend. This will be a potluck, so bring along one of your specialties (American, German or otherwise) and join us to celebrate the US holiday in Hamburg's Stadtpark.

Many of you have been living in Germany for many years. Perhaps you have contemplated applying for German citizenship, but were deterred by the German law requiring the renouncement of American citizenship.
Together with the naturalization authorities in Hamburg we invite you to an information evening about naturalization and dual-nationality. What are the rules? Are there exceptions? Where can I get more specific details concerning my situation?
The talk will be in German. However, an interpreter will be present.
You are welcome to pass this information on to other interested Americans.
