DANK Milwaukee Chapter celebrates Christmas and welcomes Spring

Milwaukee - DANK Chapter Milwaukee ended 2014 with a Christmas party for its members and German Fest volunteers on December 6th at Sacred Heart parish in Milwaukee. The DANK Chor performed and Santa stopped in for a visit with treats for the children. Coffee and cookies were served. Raffle tickets were sold and lucky winners received prizes which had been donated by members.

As winter passes, DANK chapter Milwaukee prepares for an active spring, starting with participation at Germany UNDER GLASS on Saturday, March 7th, 2015. This “mini-German Fest “ is held at the Mitchell Park Horticultural Conservatory. Sponsored by the German American Societies of the Greater Milwaukee Area and the Milwaukee County Parks, Germany UNDER GLASS derives its name from the three glass domes that enclose the horticultural conservatory. Customs from Germany, Austria and other German speaking communities are showcased.Visitors stroll through the beauty of the conservatories while listening to German musicians and singers. There will be childrens games, activities and a fairy tale corner, as well as talks on genealogy, beer barons, language and more. Light meals (Imbiss), cafe with desserts (Konditorei) and imported beers (Biergarten) will be available. The DANK chor under the direction of Dr.James Norden and the Folk Dancers under the direction of Doris Mueller will perform. Also a DANK information booth will be present.

The following month the DANK Chor will again perform, as they have been invited to be the guest choir at the Milwaukee Liederkranz concert on Sunday, April 12, 2015 at the Schwabenhof, Menomonee Falls, WI.
