We enjoyed meeting so many new people
and also old friends at German Fest this July.
The weather was beautiful!
Make plans to join us next July in Milwaukee!
The Pommerscher Verein Freistadt
will be sponsoring a trip to Pomerania in late May 2017.
InterTrav, the travel agency that coordinated the last tour,
is planning the details. It will be publicized
as soon as it is available.
