Remembering John Schaefer

We are saddened to hear that John Schaefer, former 1.Vorstand of Gauverband Nordamerika, passed away on November 21, 2022.  John was elected as a Beisitzer at the Delegates Meeting in Denver in 1969.  He served in that role until he was elected to the position of 2.Vorstand in Milwaukee in January 1974.  John then served the Gauverband in this capacity until he was elected as our 1.Vorstand in Anaheim 2002.

28. Gaufest Survey Results are In!

Thank you to everyone who took part in the 28. Gaufest Survey over the past three months.  We once again had great participation with over 230 responses. The LINKED FILE contains a summary of all the responses.  The purpose of the survey is to provide the Meetings Committee as well as future Gaufest hosts valuable feedback that can help with the planning of future Gaufeste and ways to improve the event.

Oide Wiesn Schedule for Monday, Sept. 19

Email sent to Vereine on Sept. 12:  I know that some of you are already in Bayern and enjoying yourselves. Here are some final notes for the Oide Wiesn on Monday the 19th. We need everyone to be there at noon to take their seats since they are all reserved and that includes our spectators. Our Vereine that will be performing will not take the stage until 7:30 pm and will finish at 9:30pm. Those are the time slots they gave us. But there is a lot going on during the day. Gauverband Niederbayern is performing, and the Isargau takes over with Gauverband Nordamerika.
