Remembering Ray Boudreau 

GTEV Edelweiss would like to extend our deepest sympathy to the family of Raymond Boudreau. He passed away on Sunday, August 8, 2021, at the age of 88. Ray was born in Canada in 1933. He was the loving husband of Gina Boudreau.

Raymond met Gina in Germany while serving in the United State Army. He later joined the United States Navy. Ray was a proud member of the Military for 22 years.

He was the father of three children - one daughter and two sons. May his family have peace and comfort in their hearts during this difficult time.

Ray joined Edelweiss in April, 1973, and was awarded the Goldenes Edelweiss for his contributions to our Verein in 1995. Ray will be laid out at Wysocki Funeral Home on Wednesday, August 11, 2021, from 6–9 pm. Wysocki is located at 29440 Ryan Road in Warren, MI 48092. There will be a funeral mass on Thursday, August 12, 2021, at 11 am at Our Lady of Grace Church located at 26256 Ryan Rd in Warren MI.   Link to Wysocki

Ruhe in Frieden


Sept. 3-4: Heimat Taenzer Omaha's 50th 

Time for a roadtrip?! Our friends from Omaha, Nebraska, are going to be celebrating their 50th Anniversary on Sept. 3-4. Die Heimat Tänzer had to postpone their celebration by one year but are eagerly awaiting the arrival of guests from all over at their wonderful clubhouse at the German-American Society. Our own Siasswasser Tanzlmusi will be playing! Our experiences in Omaha have always been fun and memorable.

Friday night dinner and Saturday Fest Abend banquet dinner are included in the $65 ticket price. Saturday afternoon is a church mass. The hotel is the reasonably priced Best Western Plus ($85-$95/night) just a 5-minute drive from the clubhouse.  If you're interested in going, let Rita Dziersk know by July 25 so she can get the banquet reservations made and paid.  You'll need to send her the check for the banquet ticket (let her know your dinner choice)  and any flowers you are ordering. THIS LINK takes you to more detailed information about the Fest. 


Time to Meet Again in Person?  YES! 

Our last club meeting was in March 2020.  Far too long ago!  Our beautiful Christmas program video event was a big success, but it doesn't take the place of seeing one another in person. Definitely time for face-to-face socializing!  So.... Mark your calendars for Sunday, September 12, 2021, to get together for a brief meeting followed by a member-only (and friends) picnic. You remember how the picnic works--call and let Annette know you are coming so she can plan the grill selection and Bar Obmann Mark can plan the beverage selection; bring a side dish or dessert to share; come to the park; pay $10/person; enjoy the day with fellow members.  We'll be back at the Jaycee Park in Troy.  A Wegweiser newsletter is coming out shortly that will have more details in it, including Annette's phone number. 

  • Sunday, Sept. 12, 2021 -- Jaycee Park in Troy (Long Lake Rd. between John R & Rochester)
  • Dance Group meeting at 12 noon; short Edelweiss meeting at 1 pm; food after that; socializing til dusk
