    Eppelheim Grillhütte in Eppelheim, Germany

    Heidelberg Chapter Independence Day BBQ Potluck and 25th Anniversary!

    Our annual 4th of July BBQ potluck is around the corner! We are celebrating our country's independence on Sunday July 7th at 12:00 at the Grillhütte in Eppelheim . Please join us for good food, fun and some interesting activities. NOTE: There will be NO First Friday meeting on July 5th.

    Since we are celebrating the Heidelberg Chapter’s 25th Anniversary, we have invited some special guests – current and former leaders of Democrats Abroad. Every year, we read an important historical document from U.S. history. This year we will have a reading of and short discussion about Dr. Martin Luther King’s “I Have A Dream” speech. For the kids (large and small) there will be some activities including Pokeman and maybe water balloon tossing again. Angie has promised to do one of her famous Pub Quizzes (with prizes). The Grillhütte has a sandbox and plenty of space for younger kids to play in, so bring the family. There is also an inside area and a covered area in case the weather doesn’t cooperate. And, importantly, there are bathrooms.

    Please RSVP  at this website or email Nancy at Heidelberg@democratsabroad.de so that we have an idea how many people are coming and what you are bringing.

    Where:  Eppelheim Grillhütte (Am Sportplatz in Eppelheim – then look for sign to Grillhütte) Bus 22 from Bismarckplatz will get you 1 Kilometer from the Grillplatz. Let me know if you need a shuttle from there and I’ll give you my mobile number.

    What to bring:  Please bring a dish to share (eg. salad, dessert), and something for the grill. It would be nice if you bring your own dishes, but paper plates, cups as well as metal utensils will be provided as needed. Water and some soft drinks will be provided, but feel free to bring your own choice of drink.
