our Deutsches Haus has been an ongoing endeavor by our committed
members and especially our dedicated board members. Currently, the
north facade will catch the attention and admiration of passing
traffic on Third Avenue. The mural that Karin Austin has designed is
now becoming a reality. Hans Behrens, who also expresses his
artistic talents with a paint brush, is seen on the scaffolding
along with Karin. And soon, the large blank archway will reveal a
colorful scene, reminders of German landscape and culture.
We hope that such endeavors will inspire more of our members to
participate and contribute to keeping our Deutsches Haus as our
inviting home for our members and guests. Currently, we have a most
enthusiastic board of directors who contribute generously of their
time as well as financially to preserving and maintaining our house.
Because of the pandemic, our income has shrunk drastically as most
of you are aware. Our fund-raising dinners had to be halted and our
hall rentals were cancelled. We honor and acknowledge those who
contribute financially by placing their names on a decorative plaque
and we would be grateful to see your name appear on it as well.
Not so lovely as our mural are the ongoing efforts of such things as
the repair of our roof, the water damaged ceiling. We filled in and
cemented over the large planter area in front of the now painted
archway. A wrought iron fence is planned around that area to protect
the mural. These are just a few items that require your generosity
of time or contribution. There are many generous members that
deserve our thanks and acknowledgement. The one person I simply must
mention this time is John King. He has spent countless hours on
maintenance. He knows who to call when things need to be repaired
and he is on the job to see the project through. He deserves our
gratitude. And yes, he can also prepare a scrumptious Schnitzel
dinner. It is hard enough, but thanks. -- Edgar
