Upcoming Practice and Meeting: Oct. 8 

Is Sunday, October 8, on your calendar? Of course it is, every calendar has it. But does it say "Edelweiss Sunday"? Do you have your dancing shoes ready to practice at noon? If dancing isn't on your agenda, show up anytime after noon and socialize before the meeting. Bring something to drink (non alcoholic) and perhaps a snack to share. At 2 pm, we'll have a club meeting. It's always an enjoyable afternoon, especially when it's spent with good friends.  See you at the GACC Hall.  

If you're new to Edelweiss, we look forward to welcoming you anytime after noon. Come see what we're all about!  The GACC Hall is at 40450 Hayes Rd, Clinton Twp.  (Hayes just south of 18 Mile Road in the Amore Plaza)


Members and Friends Annual Picnic 

Every year we have a picnic for our members and any friends they might like to bring along. This year it is Sunday, Sept. 10, at 2 pm. We'll start setting up at 1 pm, so arrive any time after that.  At about 2 pm we'll have a short meeting along with celebrating our 92nd anniversary. Our luncheon/dinner will be after that. The grillemasters will be cranking out delicious bratwurst and hot dogs; the serving tables will be covered in side dishes and desserts; and the bar table will have plenty of beer, wine, and soft drinks. The cost is $10/person which covers the food and drink. Please bring along a side dish or dessert to share so that no one goes away hungry!  Call Annette to give her a count of how many are coming so that she orders enough meat and our bar Obman brings along enough beverages. Annette is at 248-840-1953

  • $10/person - pay the day of the picnic
  • Bring a side dish or dessert to share
  • Call Annette for a headcount
  • Arrive after 1 pm at Jaycee Park in Troy (Long Lake Road between John R & Rochester) (yup, we've been here many times!)
