Welcome to the website of the
Pommerscher Verein Freistadt!
We are glad you came to visit.
Please stay awhile.

Based on overwhelming feedback from the membership, the board has voted to change the meeting day and time. Beginning September 2018, the PVF meetings have changed to the second SATURDAY of the month, beginning at 1:00 p.m.
The next meeting is Erntedankfest (Pomeranian Thanksgiving) on October 13. Please join us for a potluck meal, a "parade" where members carry a decorated garden tool, and other Pomeranian traditions. Don Burhop will play his accordian help lead the festivities.

Tour of Pomerania
The Pomeranian Heritage Tour Group gathered in front of the
Pommersches Landesmuseum in Greifswald, Germany in May 2017.
The museum specializes in the history of Pomerania.
Tours of northern Germany and Poland, in what was once Pomerania,
were conducted in May 2015 and May 2017. Enjoy some photos of the trips below.
Another tour is potentially being planned for the spring of 2019. If you have a specific
"Pomeranian" town in Germany or Poland you are researching and might possibly
wish to join a tour, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the name of
the town (and closest current city if you know it.)
