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!
We're starting up a reading group in the Mannheim area. For now, this will meet just from time to time to see what interest there is. Our first book for discussion is "Hillbilly Elegy" by J.D. Vance. This get-together will take place in October and will be hosted at the home of one of our members, with the exact date TBA (probably the weekend of October 11th or 12th). If you are interested, please contact us at email@example.com and we will keep you informed of the meeting details.
Join us for good food, drink and lively political discussion. This is iour Chapter's usual get-together and is a chance to meet like-minded Americans in a casual atmosphere, and to find out what the Heidelberg Chapter of Democrats Abroad is planning in the upcoming months. As usual, we will discuss some current political topics, which almost always becomes a pretty lively discussion. Look forward to seeing you there!
