Ehrenmitglied Sepp Kaindl & Bavarian Press

Gau-NA's Ehrenmitglied Sepp Kaindl has had a lot of press in Bavaria--and so have we! The articles written by Beate Bentele have been excellent. There are now five of them and they are all combined in one pdf.  Sepp also did two radio interviews which are in separate links.  Take a look and listen to all!  The upcoming September issue of the Gauzeitung has more photos and an article in it about Sepp.
