German Conversation NiGHT

Third Tuesday of the Month (Coming up next – January 21, February 18).  7pm-8pm in the Bier Stube (Small bar).  A chance to practice German.  Event led by a teacher.  Free.  No registration required.

German Folk-SINGING

A new opportunity to practice German is the new German Folk Sing-A-Long which has started this autumn. Not a German language class. It’s just for fun and takes place every 2nd and 4th Monday from 7:30 to 8:30. With an emphasis of singing songs “auf deutsch”, the goal is to honor the German heritage that is remembered in old German folk songs, with perhaps a passing nod to more current German melodies. Meets in the Bier Stube every 2nd & 4th Monday from 7:30 pm to 8:30 pm.    Free and open to the public.  Just for fun – come and sing.
