AATG OHIO FALL CONFERENCE 2018

Julie Schonauer, New Philadelphia High School/AATG Ohio President,

EINLADUNG
Werte KollegInnen!
Eure Ohio AATG lädt alle Mitglieder und Interessenten zu einem eintägigen Treffen mit
dem Thema Entdeckungsreise deutscher Wurzeln in Ohio im Herbst herzlich ein. Wir
möchten euch bitten, den deutsch-amerikanischen Tag am Samstag 6. Oktober 2018 frei
zu halten. Wir planen einen ereignisreichen Tag mitten in Amish Country! Wir werden
deutsche Einwanderer auf der Spur gehen, durch Besichtigungen und Führungen
wichtiger Orte der Geschichte, wie z.B. Zoar, Schönbrunn, und “Behalt”- das
Mennoniten Informationszentrum in Berlin. Eine bequeme aber auch günstige
Übernachtungsmöglichkeit wird es vor und nach der Tagung in der Nähe geben. Nähere
Informationen erfolgen bald.
Im Namen aller Vorstandsmitglieder hoffe ich, viele von euch im Herbst zu begrüßen!
Julie Schonauer
AATG Ohio Präsidentin
Dear Colleagues,
Your Ohio AATG officers are planning an exciting conference this fall in Amish
Country! Please plan to join us on German-American Day (Saturday, October 6) for a
journey of discovery, as we trace the roots of German immigrants in Ohio. We will tour
the pioneer villages of Zoar Schoenbrunn, then head to Berlin for a guided tour of the
spectacular cyclorama http://behalt.com/behalt-cyclorama/ created by the late German
painter Heinz Gaugel.http://behalt.com/meet-heinz-gaugel/. This ‘painting in the round’
depicts the history of Mennonite and Amish culture from its beginnings in Switzerland to
modern times. You will also have the option of a comfortable and reasonably priced
overnight stay either before or after the conference. More information to follow shortly!
On behalf of your AATG Ohio officers, I hope to see many of you at our Fall
Conference!
