As we enter the end to the first quarter of the year, we also enter the start of Summer. With the warmer temperatures, we hope everyone stays cool and healthy.
|It is with gratitude that I am writing to you today as the re-elected President of the German Club. Thank you for all your confidence and trust, please know that I shall continue to serve and lead the Club through the coming year. Let us also welcome and support the new Board of Directors..March was an eventful month for the Club starting off with Grünkohl & Pinkel that was held last March 10, 2023. Attendees were able to learn more about why we eat the food we do during this event, a brief history behind it, and of course, feast of some of the specialties from Bremen. We also held 2 documentary showings at the Club this month. On March 15, we had the showing of “The Philippines: Hidden Champion in Southeast Asia” made by Prof. Dr. Uwe C. Swoboda and his students from Duale Hochschule Baden-Württemberg Stuttgart. Then on March 23, Carsten Stormer’s documentary on the War in Ukraine also happened.
