Edelweiss Wins at the Gaufest! 

The 19 members who attended the 27. Gaufest in Washington, D.C., are back home.  We're proud of our big winner -- Barb Rauschendorfer!  She will reign as Schafkopfkönigen after winning the tournament. She gets to keep the Wanderpreis for two years.  You'll see a picture of it in the next Wegweiser.  Congratulations, Barb!  She did our Verein proud. Her teacher, Caroline Schaefer, is probably beaming. The late Aunt Caroline was serious about her game, and Barb learned from the best.

June 2 -- Membership Meeting & Dance Practice 

Don't forget that our dance practice & membership meeting for the month of June got moved up a week -- we'll be meeting on Sunday, June 2!  Members, friends, and anyone interested in seeing what we're about are all invited to attend.  Dance practice 12:30; meeting 3 pm.  Carpathia Hall, GACC Room, 38000 Utica Rd., Sterling Heights 48312

Saying goodbye to Mike Billo 

Our wonderful, long-time members Marianne Billo and Christina Billo Winquest are mourning the loss of their son and brother, Mike Billo.  Although Mike was never an Edelweiss member, we all got to know him because he and his beautiful family were often at our events.  And, of course, we have all followed his 15-year battle against a brain tumor.  Our hearts go out to Marianne and Christina as well as the rest of the family members who loved Mike.  The family has invited their Edelweiss family to come to the memorial service: 

  • Saturday, April 13, 2019, Memorial Mass - 10:00am (in state at 9:30am): St. Isaac Jogues Catholic Church, 21100 Madison Street, St. Clair Shores, MI 48081
  • Luncheon following to celebrate his life from 12-5 pm at: Fraternal Order of Eagles 23631 Greater Mack Ave, St. Clair Shores, MI 48080

Ruhe in Frieden

Irish? Bayrisch? Spend the Day with Us! 

Sunday, March 17, is St. Patrick's Day, favorite day of the Irish and the Irish-Wannabes. But YOU can come spend the day with the Bayrisch! It's Edelweiss's dance practice and general meeting day. There will be fun and beer (hmmm, probably not green though) and friends. Come to the GACC room at the Carpathia Club and see what we're all about.

To those going to the Gaufest, bring along your check made out to GTEV Edelweiss to pay for your tickets ($225 per person). 

Carpathia Hall -- 38000 Utica Rd, Sterling Heights, MI 48312.  Practice as 12:30; meeting at 3.
