Transylvanian Saxons celebrated their 104th Anniversary

Sterling Heights - The Transylvanian Saxons, Branch 37, celebrated its 104th Anniversary on March 18, 2017 at the Carpathia Club, with a dinner dance. A delicious dinner was prepared and served by the Carpathia ladies and music was provided by “Special Edition“ for our listening and dancing pleasure.

It was a pleasure to welcome members and friends for an enjoyable fun filled evening and having the chance to catch up on all the latest happenings in everyone’s life.

Our raffle is always a crowd pleaser, especially those who go home with a prize. Thanks to everyone who donated a prize for this occasion.

We also had a special raffle as a fund raiser for the Turning Point organization of Macomb County, established in 1980, and they are always available to help people in desperate need to live a violence free life. Special thanks goes to Sue Wilburn for donating a handcrafted andirondack chair for this raffle.

We cannot forget our 2nd Vice President, Debbie Ferguson, for a job well done in taking care of all the preparations in order to make this evening a memorable one.

Two special members were honored this evening for their active service to Br. 37, namely Sam Klein and George Schemmel. Each was presented with a clock engraved with their names, Branch 37 and the years of being an active member.

Thank you Debbie for picking the appropriate gift for these two members. Job well done.

George has been a member for 70 years and has held almost every office except President, Secretary and Treasurer since he joined Br. 37 back in 1947, his last position was ATS Secretary, which he held for 14 years. He also served as a Trustee on the National ATS Board for many years. George was unable to attend due to health problems. George we wish you better days ahead with God’s blessing.

Sam has been a member since 1951, and during his 60 years has held just about every office. President, 1st VP, 2nd VP, Financial Secretary, ATS Secretary and his last position as Treasurer for 14 years.

I would like to encourage every member and friends to come and join us at our monthly meetings, which are held on the first Sunday of the month at St. Peter’s Lutheran Church at 12:30 p.m. It is vital to keep our fraternal organization and heritage alive for our future generation.

Wishing everyone warmer days ahead, now that Spring is supposedly here, and Happy Easter blessings to everyone.
