Toledo Schwabenverein served luncheon for festival volunteers

“Beer Stein Holding” competition at 5 minutes.

Toledo - The Verein, as it does every year after the GAF Festival, purchased, prepared and served lunch and dinner to almost a hundred volunteers working on the festival clean-up. Erick Schiehlen and Danny Ash coordinated and added their culinary expertise to the effort. Lunch consisted of pork roast, spätzle with gravy and red cabbage. No one went away hungry, with many complements for an excellent meal. A light evening meal which included hamburgers was also served.

The Verein recently awarded six college scholarships of $500 each to the following students:

Elise Lohmann (Univ. of Toledo)

Kristen Scott (Owens College)

Brian Mathe (Michigan Tech.)

Taylor Waggoner (Ohio State)

The Chris Ziegler scho-larship to: Emily Belcik (Capital Univ.)

The Marie Schmalzried scholarship to: Craig Lohmann (BGSU)

The Schwabenverein has given scholarships for 12 years, in that time it has given 90 scholarships totaling $45,000.

On Saturday, October 6, the Verein (coordinated by the Entertainment Committee and D&D Pfouts) held its first “Oktoberfest” at the Oak Shade Grove in Oregon, Ohio. The event was fantastic! Great music by “The Homewreckers” in the outdoor pavilion and the large festival tent put the crowd in a great mood. Even though the weather was on the chilly side the bonfire, the beer keg throwing and the beer stein competitions really warmed up the atmosphere. There was a large choice of beers available, both American and German. For those interested in food there were brats, pretzels, landjäger, other snacks and souvenirs.

The first “Oktoberfest” at the Grove was enjoyed by young and old.
