The Society offers cultural events for German speaking seniors and residents, which are conducted in the German language. The community gathers twice a month, on Saturday afternoons at the German-Canadian Care Home. Events feature coffee and cake followed by a film, a speaker or a seasonal sing-along. Since their inception these events have been very well attended.
Ongoing donations to help the Society support and finance these events are much appreciated. If you have any questions regarding this program or are interested in volunteering, please contact the Program Coordinator, Waltraud Custer at 604-713-6562, or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
In addition, the Outreach program includes a book exchange and a poetry club. A weekly German sing-along is organized for Care Home residents, and members of the German community often also enjoy taking part.
A permanent book exchange was recently established for Society members and visitors in the Care Home’s Stuhlmueller library. The demand for a place to collect and exchange German books is evident and a great opportunity for German speaking seniors, as well as any age group interested in German literature, to access and exchange books.
The Society supports and finances these events and your donations are graciously accepted. If you have any questions regarding this program or are interested in volunteering, please contact our Program Coordinator, Waltraud Custer at 604.713.6562, or e-mail email@example.com.
