Message from the Executive Director – July 2017

Our foundation has been diligently researching the numerous German-American clubs and organizations throughout the United States. Through this research we have found hundreds of clubs, all with one thing in common: their aim to preserve and celebrate German-American heritage, culture, language, and more. Each month we are highlighting different clubs that are achieving their goals in furthering the German-American connection. Would you like your German-American club or organization featured in “GAHF Club Connect”? Please consider becoming a member club or organization of the GAHF. As a publication of the country’s only nationwide German-American umbrella organization, this e-newsletter brings together local clubs from all across the country. This month we have chosen the Bayerischer Volksfest Verein of Philadelphia, the Schwaebischer Frauen Verein of San Francisco, the Lakewood Maennerchor of New Jersey, and the Edelweiss Club of Maryland.
