German Club 2013-2014

Welcome to the 2013-2014 German Club!

The officers for this year are:
Sarah Wall, President
Justin Magin, Vice President
Kate Nelson, Secretary
Melanie Nevins, Treasurer
Jill Jones, Historian

We had our first meeting yesterday, 9/13. We talked about some ideas for future meetings and then spent the rest of our time making Schultüte, or school cones. These cones are given to German children on their first day of first grade, and they're filled by their parents, grandparents, or godparents with little school supplies, candy, and toys. As it was our first meeting, we felt that it was appropriate to celebrate this tradition… even if we aren't in first grade anymore! Below are some pictures of various Schultüte.

Our next meeting will be Friday, 10/4. Please remember to bring your $1 due (with a recommended - but not mandatory - $4 donation)! If you would like to bring any food, please feel free to do so. We hope to see you there!
