Der Adler Correction
The most recent copy of Der Adler incorrectly states the date of our annual Spring Concert. The correct date of the spring concert is Thursday, March 19. The times for the dinner and the show are correct. Sorry for the confusion.

Der Adler Deadline Reminder
The deadline for the Spring edition of Der Adler will be Friday, March 20. Please send all information about upcoming Schwaben events, German community events etc. to Joe T. Ludwig at Joe will need information about the Dirndl/Trachten Ball, Schwabenfest, Gulasch Dinner, Golf Ball Drop and any other Donauschwaben Events or news between May and July 2015.

Fish Fry
The Youth Group will be hosting a fish fry before the February and March Member’s meeting this year. The menu will be Lent-friendly and includes a variation of fried fish, baked fish, mac and cheese, baked potato, bread, salad, spaghetti and tomato sauce, and garlic bread. Thank you for supporting the Youth Group.

St. Francis Seraph
Thank you to everyone who attended our Annual Dinner Dance last weekend. We hope you had a great time. With your help and support, we raised over $1,200 for the “Let’s Fill the Bus” fundraiser, benefiting the St. Francis Seraph’s students. This money will help the school fund much needed off site field trips. Your generosity is MUCH appreciated!

Friday Night Stein Verein
Please note that we will not be hosting a Friday Night Stein Verein in February or March 2015. The event is scheduled to continue in April 2015.
