The ‘Chris Ziegler Scholarship’ went to Craig Lohmann and the ‘Marie Schmalzried Scholarship’ was given to Emily Belcik. Since 2001 the Schwabenverein has given 97 scholarships adding up to $48,500.

The Verein had its annual Waldfest on Sunday, July 28 at the Oak Shade Grove in Oregon, OH. The chilly weather, for July, and a few sprinkles did not keep the crowd from enjoying  the food, music, drinks and camaraderie. Food as always included hotdogs, several types of brats, corn on the cob, grilled chicken, potato salad, sauerkraut (of course), ham hocks, leberkäse and a selection of fine desserts. Domestic and imported beer assisted in the enjoyment of the food. One or two people may have even drank coffee. Pretzels, landjäger, wine and pop were also available. Music and entertainment was provided by the Holzhacker Buam Schuhplattlers, the “Encore Band” and from Germany the “Musikverein Dettingen”.

The “Musikverein Dettingen” played both at Teutonia’s Kornfest and the Schwaben Waldfest, their music was fantastic. The Schwabenverein and the Teutoniachor jointly worked with the German brass band to make their appearance at both festivals possible. The forty member band comes from Dettingen Germany which is located south of Stuttgart in the Schwäbischen Alpen. The band also played in Columbus, OH: Dundee, Michigan and Pittsburgh and spent time at Cedar Point and Niagara Falls.
