Trauer um Georg Westner, Bay. Trachtenverband

Der Gauverband Nordamerika ist bestürzt über die Nachricht vom Tod von Georg Westner.  Seine Taten im Leben zeigten seine wahre Hingabe an die Trachtenbewegung und wir werden ihn schmerzlich vermissen.

Unser Beileid gilt seiner Familie und dem Bayerischen Trachtenverband.

Remembering Dan Biehler

We are saddened to hear that Dan Biehler passed away in March. Dan was the Gauverband’s first Gaumusikwart, appointed to the position by Gauvorstand Walter Wieand in 1992. He served until 1994 when he did not run for reelection due to work commitments. Dan was a tremendously knowledgeable and talented musician, playing button box accordion, Hackbrett, and several other instruments. At the 1992 and 1994 Delegates Meetings and the 1993 Gaufest, he led several music workshops. Dan was 81 when he passed away.
