60 Years and Celebration Boards

Deutsche Tage Celebration Boards

We encourage our GAI members to put together a “Celebration Board.” This board will commemorate and show their involvement in Deutsche Tage over the last 60 years.  This will give the GAI community a chance to participate and celebrate in the history of the event.  As one of the highlights, a “celebration tent” showcasing all of the “Celebration Boards” will be set-up for viewing during the event. An in haus exhibit will take place as well.

Be as creative as you would like to be!

Please contact Linda DeRoode if you have any further questions.
