25th Anniversary and Independence Day BBQ 2019

The Heidelberg Chapter Independence Day BBQ and 25th Anniversary had a great turnout! Our chapter was founded in June 1994 and, with only two exceptions, has met in one form or another every month since then. Germany Chair, Candice Kerestan, along with former Germany Chairs Ron Schlundt, Amy Peaceman and John McQueen were also in attendance. John is a co-founder of the Heidelberg Chapter, and had a humorous anecdote to share with us called “Invasion of the Meeting Snatchers”. Former Heidelberg Chairs Niki Vonderwell, Charles Keene and John McQueen were also in attendance as was current Chair Nancy Schimkat. As per our tradition of reading notable political speeches, we had a reading of Dr. Martin Luther King’s “I Have A Dream” speech. Angie Johnson, Pub Quizzer Extraordinaire, gave us an American-themed quiz, and younger visitors brought their favorite games. The food everyone brought was excellent, and fun was had by all. Thanks to all the volunteers who helped to make this happen!
