THANKSGIVING DINNER, MARRIOTT HOTEL MUNICH
As in many years before, the German-American Men’s Club Munich celebrated Thanksgiving again at the Marriott Hotel in Munich. By including the ladies of the German-American Women’s Club Munich the total attendance was 72 persons. We therefore were accorded a separate room with a very lovely ambience.
Our President Uli Dornseifer welcomed the festive gathering and expressed his thanks for the show of interest in this typical American event. Our Board member in charge of student and youth exchange, Prof. Eberhard Standl, introduced the 3 exchange students from different universities in the United States who currently spend two semesters as guests of the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München and at the University of Augsburg. Other guests of honor were Vice President Traudl Schmid and the former President Ulrike Kellner, both from the GAWC Munich, the Chairman for Student Exchange of the Federation of German-American Clubs Mike Pilewski as well as the President of MING (Munich International Networking Group) Lawrence Schulz.
A copious buffet with delicious dishes, typical for Thanksgiving, and the high spirits of the participants made for a very successful evening
