Hang up the Lederhosen


To The Editor:
After 13 fantastic and authentic Oktoberfest fundraisers, the members of the German-American Club of the Northern Catskills have decided to cancel this year’s event, which was scheduled for October 19 at Belleayre’s Discovery Lodge.

A great big “thank you” goes to the club members who worked so diligently over the years to promote our German heritage and culture while at the same time supporting many worthwhile causes.  But the biggest “Danke Schoen” goes to the public for attending our annual Oktoberfests and to the local businesses who supported us. 

For now it’s time to hang up the Lederhosen and pack away the Dirdl dresses.  We’ll keep you posted on what “wunderbar” events we have planned for this little corner of our world in the future.
