Shepard to host "A Little Bit of Germany" on Saturday

Shepard High School will host “A Little Bit of Germany” to support its exchange program on Saturday, January 18 from 4 to 8 p.m. 

The fund raiser, which features German food, a folk band, dancing, and imported goods for sale, has set new attendance records the past two years.  In 2013, nearly 350 people attended.

Admission is $10 for adults and $5 for children age 12 and under.  Ticket price includes a German dinner of bratwurst, sauerkraut, German potato salad, Bread, and coffee, water or cider. Dinner will be served from 4-7 pm.  Soda and Root Beer will be available for purchase.

The fun includes entertainment by the folk band Paloma from the Dankhaus German Cultural Center in Chicago.

Next summer, teacher Jennifer Fischer and a group of German Club students will visit students from Johann Wolfgang Goethe Gymnasium in Germersheim.  During their trip, Shepard students will attend classes at Goethe (German schools feature a full-year calendar), visit various cultural and historical sites, and, in general, live as Germans.

Goethe and Shepard students have visited one another for more than 25 years.
