Don't be Square! Come to the Hoedown! 

For the last 15 years, the day after Thanksgiving has been our fun evening of square dancing at a Hoedown.  Held in a Centennial barn in Milford, the third generation square dance caller on this farm does a great job.  No experience square dancing?  No problem!  It's not that hard and we're all seasoned dancers after all these years.  You'll have a great time!  Everyone brings a dish to pass -- some sort of munchie, yummy edible to add to the 10' long goody table.  You're also in charge of your own refreshments (soft drinks, beer, etc.).  Cost for the evening is $20 each.  See the flyer for

Gedächtnismesse, Sunday, Nov. 9 

The Gedächtnismesse is an annual memorial mass in honor of our deceased members, especially those who have passed away since our last memorial. Part of the mass is in German, and Edelweiss members provide the music. It is followed by a luncheon in the church hall; please bring a dish to share.  Edelweiss members wear Trauertracht.  Anyone else attending is invited to wear Tracht as well.  Our friends from the Austrian Club also participate as do other members of the German community.  Attendance does not require a reservation & all are welcome.  Donation for the luncheon, which includes soft drinks and beer, is $10 per person; $5 for children 12 and under.  Mass is at 2 pm.  We'd be pleased to have you join us!
