On behalf of the Gemütlichen Enzianer, we would like to extend an invitation to join us at our Fahnen-Segnung and Bauernball (Flag Rededication Celebration) on April 18, 2015. Our Club’s flag is an important symbol of our heritage and Trachten tradition and as such, the refurbishment and rededication of our flag is an important milestone in our club’s history.
