01/18 KOLPING STUBE NACHT – Kolping Society of Cincinnati is having their inaugural Stube Nacht on Saturday, January 18th from 7pm-midnight, and we’ve been invited — they’ll even have a Stammtisch just for us!
01/17 MOERLEIN GERMAN NIGHT – Moerlein Brewery Taproom will host a German Society night on Friday, January 17th from 5:30pm till close. Bring a favorite hors d’oeuvre and your best Singing voice. Not a fund raiser, just for the fun of celebrating our German heritage. Parking available in the St. Francis School lot and the Moerlein lots on Moore Street.
BOCKFEST APPROACHES (03/7-9) – We’re coming up on another exciting Bockfest celebration soon, and Mustard Club is getting ready for the parade. With 3 years of wins under our belt, we’re working on something BIG to keep us on top. If you’re interested in getting involved, please contact us ASAP to help with this year’s parade float.
IN THE MEDIA – We’re in the news again! Our club is mentioned at the end of an article about the two major mustard companies in Bavaria: Händlmaier and Develey. In the only line about our club, for some reason they say that, “the members are indulging themselves with mustard on pizza.” Not sure where that idea came from — we didn’t even know Mecklenburg served pizza! But it’s great that Händlmaier and the club has been featured in an article from a NATIONAL German newspaper! (FYI – You can use http://translate.google.com/ to translate the article, if you don’t sprechen Deutsch.)
VIDEO: HÄNDLMAIER FACTORY – Friend of the Club, Tilman Müller, turned us on to this video about the Händlmaier plant, which produces 50 tons of sweet mustard daily, and the fact that it’s at capacity. Perhaps we’ll see a new, bigger Händlmaier plant in the future!
LONG SLEEVE CLUB SHIRTS – If you ordered your embroidered shirt in October and didn’t pick it up at the December meeting, please see Beisitzer James at the January meeting to get your shirt. We’ll be taking new orders in August and September for November delivery. Stay tuned!
CHUCK IS NEW GACL DELEGATE – Former Mustard Club President Chuck Deitz has accepted the position as our 2014 (German American Citizens League) GACL Delegate, and will represent the Club at all appropriate GACL functions. Thanks, Chuck for your continued service!
