The Swiss Club is back!

We are excited to see all our friends and compatriots for the first time since Christmas 2019, and this year on the actual First of August!

Winter Sausage is not yet open to the public, but has agreed to supply long-term customers, so we will have the famous “Olma Bratwurst” on the grill. And we hope many of your favorite Swiss dishes to share.

We will hear the Swiss President’s address and Walter Wegmueller will give us an update on all that’s happened in Switzerland this year. Much to hear, like the EU negotiations, CO2, and recent initiatives, reopening of travel from the US (yes! Many of us going), and activities of our consulate in Chicago.

We have not collected dues for 2020 since the club was shut down. Any members who paid for 2020 are paid up for 2021.

Note that we will also elect a new Board, since we did not have our Annual Meeting.

Looking forward to seeing all of you again after more than a year! No RSVP required, just show up and bring a desert or side dish.

Alice Boos is retiring from the Board due for health reasons. The Board is looking for candidates to take her place as VP Membership, or as President of the Board. We will be looking for volunteers at the picnic.
