With good food and fun, the 2017 4th of July BBQ was a success! Members and friends came to help celebrate our country’s independence. We had our annual reading of the Declaration of Independence by several members as well as two additional readings. John read about Thomas Jefferson’s 1778 visit to Heidelberg and his impressions, and Xander shared some of John F. Kennedy’s wisdom that applies still today. Then it was on to entertainment – Angie’s famous pub quiz, water balloon tossing contest and some singing of American folk songs. Here are some pictures. Hope to see you there again, or for the first time, next year!
Nancy Schimkat is the new Chair of the Democrats Abroad Germany Heidelberg Chapter. While interested in our always animated political discussions at monthly meetings, she is also looking for people willing to help with the Democrats Abroad Germany organization. You can help by being part of one of the Democrats Abroad Germany caucuses, including Women, LGBT and Minority Caucuses. You can also help by signing up to help Get Out The Vote (GOTV) for upcoming elections. This is the most effective way you can help the Democrats take back control in Washington. Please get in touch with us if you are interested.
