“Our trip to Germany will be the program at the next meeting of the Bluebonnet Chapter of the Texas German Society,” said Chapter president Herbert Schumann.
It will be presented by Karl Micklitz and Robert Herridge and will describe the highlights of the trip they took in the summer of 2016. Micklitz is a native of Germany, and Herridge is past president of the Texas Germany Society.
The meeting will be held at the Hill Center in Sealy on March 22, and will begin at 7:00 p.m.
Forty-five members and guests attended the last Chapter meeting in which Egon Schackmann described his experiences in Germany at the end of World War II. Schackmann, a resident of Kenney, is a native of Germany who served in the German Army near the end of the War.
Visitors are welcome to attend the meeting, and also encouraged to join the chapter. Knowledge of the German language is not a requirement. They may contact Chapter president, Herbert Schumann, at 979-865-3804.
