President’s Report/Bericht des Vorsitzenden - Ernst Stader
We have received one of the best
summers in history with record breaking sunny days. Yes, we were praying
for rain occasionally, but the weather
can not easily be controlled.
As I mentioned in our last edition, if
attendance to our Preis Skat does not
increase, it will be cancelled. Fortunate enough, people from Orillia ( who were also at our
Oktoberfest ) made it possible to have at least 5 tables
with 3 players each. So you see, we do our part, but
you also have to do your part, otherwise no more tournaments.
We were also fortunate enough, to pick a perfect day
for our Oktoberfest. Preparation for that event started
well ahead of time, and everyone who was involved in
one way or the other knows through experience how
much work is needed to make this as perfect as possible. Oktoberfest, and I’m not bragging, turns out to be
the biggest event in Oshawa. This year our premises
were too small to accommodate everyone, unfortunately we had to turn at least 60 people away, who
would have loved to be part of the event. Visitors from
all over were greeted by our board members, people
from as far as Germany, (Erzgebirge), the Belleville
Club, who arrived by bus with 27 people, about 18 to
20 visitors from Peterborough, a group from Orillia
(who were also at our skat tournament), Frank and
Helga Scott brought the whole Club Carib with President Ashley and his charming wife Louise, and Udo and
Margret Hess who weren’t afraid to make the long trip
from Michigan. Just to celebrate Oktoberfest with us.
This surely is proof enough, Oshawa rates among the
top places for such an event. The board of directors
would proudly like to thank everyone for being part of
Oktoberfest.
(cont’d pg. 5).
Ein Sommer mit Rekord brechenden Temperaturen,
sonnigen Tagen und ein herrlicher Herbst stellen für die
meisten von uns die schönsten Jahreszeiten dar. Wir
haben zwar auch manchmal auf etwas Regen gehofft,
der unbedingt nötig gewesen wäre, aber es ist nun
einmal unmöglich, die Natur zu kontrollieren.
Wie ich in der letzten Ausgabe bekannt gab, wird der
Preisskat aufgelöst, wenn in Zukunft nicht mehr Leute
erscheinen. Glücklicherweise hatten sich 4 Personen
aus Orillia angemeldet, um am Skatspielen teilzunehmen; das ergab dann 5 Tische mit je 3 Spielern. Ohne
diese Leute hätten wir mit 11 Personen dagestanden.
Daher gibt es nur eine Lösung: Wir ziehen den Skat auf
und ihr müsst euch daran beteiligen, ganz einfach,
sonst ist der Preisskat Geschichte.
Unser Oktoberfest war eines der besten in den letzten
10 oder 15 Jahren. Das Wetter war hervorragend und
die Stimmung ebenfalls. Die Vorbereitungen für dieses
Fest fanden schon Monate im Voraus statt und jeder
der Mithelfer weiß, wie viel Arbeit damit verbunden ist.
Ich übertreibe nicht, wenn ich behaupte, dass dies
eines der besten Feste in Oshawa ist. In diesem Jahr
war unser Klub nicht groß genug, um alle Besucher zu
fassen; ungefähr 60 Leuten mussten wir den Eintritt
verweigern, weil kein Platz mehr zu finden war. Besucher von Nah und Fern erschienen, eine Gruppe aus
Deutschland ( Erzgebirge), 27 Leute vom Klub Belleville, sowie 18 oder 20 Gäste aus Peterborough und
die Skatspieler mit ihren Frauen aus Orillia. Frank und
Helga Scott brachten den ganzen Carib Klub mit dem
Vorsitzenden Ashley und seiner Frau Louise zum Oktoberfest. Auch Udo und Margret Hess scheuten nicht
den langen Weg von Michigan, um mit uns das Oktoberfest zu feiern. Das beweist, dass Oshawa und Klub
Loreley in der Lage sind, mit den Besten zu konkurrieren.

GERMAN - CANADIAN CLUB LORELEY
President’s report cont’d:
This year our Youth Dancers, under the leadership
of Holly Henninger, opened Oktoberfest, and what a
performance they put on. From the tots to the seniors, it was a delight to our visitors. Of course the
kitchen and chef Trevor, with his excellent cuisine of
German origin, did their part to the satisfaction of
everyone, so did the bar – personnel, Wanda and
Lilli with their helpers, Karl Gores and Katrin Albrecht who did a terrific job at our shooting gallery
in our basement. Also our big Raffle ( Tombola )
with Gerda and those lovely looking girls from the
Youth Dancers. Last but not least, the “Euro Connection” with an outstanding performance of Oktoberfest and dance music. All in all, a perfect event,
and preparations are under way already for next
year.
It still amazes me, that members can not spare a
couple of hours to be personally informed how Club
Loreley ( your club ) survives, and how the club is
handling every day affairs. It would really be nice, to
greet some of our new members at our general and
half year meetings, because it’s held entirely in
English.
Some of our members will probably not receive the
newspaper (next edition) in time for our next big
event on Nov. 3rd, “Glen Miller Night”, with a classical swing orchestra. But those events are well advertised ahead of time, and everyone should be informed.
Now to our upcoming events, one more Kino Rama
before the year ends, Nov. 18th. at 2 p.m. (see
flyer).
Auf diese Weise möchte sich der Vorstand bei allen
Besuchern für die Teilnahme am Oktoberfest recht
herzlich bedanken. Die Eröffnung wurde von den
Jugendtänzern eingeleitet unter der Leitung von Holly
Henninger mit einer erstklassigen Vorführung von
Schuhplattlern, Polkas und anderen Tänzen; die Besucher waren begeistert. Die Küche mit Küchenchef
Trevor, die eine Auswahl an deutschen Speisen anbot,
sowie das Barpersonal, Wanda und Lilli und ihre Helfer,
hatten den Andrang meisterlich geregelt. Genau das
Gleiche bei Karl Gores und Karin Albrecht, die für den
Schießstand im Keller zuständig waren. Nicht zu
vergessen Gerda und ihre hübschen Mädel beim
Verkauf der Lose und Austeilung der Preise der Tombola ( Raffle). Dann die einmalige Kapelle “ EURO
CONNECTION” mit einer Auswahl an Oktoberfest- und
Tanzmusik. Ein Abend, der noch lange in Erinnerung
bleibt und schon heute freuen wir uns auf das nächste
Oktoberfest.
Einige Worte zu unserer Halbjahresversammlung: Ich
muss mich immer wundern, dass viele unserer Mitglieder nicht in der Lage sind, einige Stunden (2 bis 3) freizuhalten, um sich persönlich davon zu überzeugen, wie
unser Klub arbeitet, sich über Wasser hält und sonst
noch geleitet wird. Es würde mich auch sehr freuen,
wenn unsere Neumitglieder mehr Anteilnahme zeigen
würden, wo doch sowieso alles in Englisch geregelt
wird und jeder es verstehen kann.
Manche unserer Mitglieder werden wahrscheinlich nicht
die neue Ausgabe ( Zeitung) früh genug erhalten, wenn
der nächste Tanz “ Glen Miller Night” von der Bühne
rollt. Aber hier noch einmal: am Samstag, den 3. November findet die “ Glen Miller Night” statt mit dem
Klassischen Swing Orchester unter der Leitung von
Tom Pinto. Es wurde genug Reklame gemacht, im Klub
und auch außerhalb, ich denke jeder müsste informiert
sein.
Don’t forget our annual Christmas market, Sunday,
Nov, 25th. from 10 a.m. till 4 p.m. Kitchen and bar
are open from 11 a.m. ( see also flyer )
Zum Ausklang des Jahres noch einmal Kino Rama am
Sonntag, den 18. November um 14.00 Uhr, ( Siehe
Reklame ).
Advent concert with the Loreley Singers on Dec.
1st. ( see report and flyer of the Loreley Singers).

den 25. November von 10.00 Uhr bis 16.00 Uhr. Küche
und Bar ab 11.00 Uhr geöffnet. ( mehr unter Reklame)

Club Loreley Kitchen
Our kitchen is open every Thursday evening from
4:00 - 7:00 p.m to members and the public. We look
forward to seeing you at our club to enjoy some fine
European dining! We are closed June 28th & July 5th,
but reopening on July 12th.
Our head chef, Trevor Foreman, is a graduate of the
Liaison College in Toronto (where he trained under
Chef Michael Elliot).
Foreman, who was raised in Winnipeg, has been
cooking since he was 16. He moved to Toronto in
1997 to go to cooking school and apprenticed at the
Westin Harbour Castle Hotel, as well as a number of
smaller restaurants. The fallout from 9-11 dried up
the convention business in Toronto and resulted in Foreman’s arrival
at Pepperberries Bistro and was an origional member of the Pepperberries staff, starting as the sous chef under David Evans, an Australian. The Bistro opened in November 2001, and taking over the roll of
executive Chef in 2002. He has also run a very successful in-home
catering business, where he comes into your home and prepares a
dinner for you and your guests - an event that you will never forget.
2005 brought on a new challenge as he took over the kitchen at Club
Loreley in Oshawa. Foreman is committed and experienced in preparing exquisite cuisine for his clients at Club Loreley no matter how
big or small the party may be. Club Loreley’s kitchen staff, under the
direction of Foreman, invite you to come for a wonderful dinner
Thursday nights (see the menu below) or consider us for your next
event (more details on our website).

Heimatsanger Report - Christel Petrowski
Most of us feel a little blue once Thanksgiving Day has passed. Even so we might still have some
nice weather, but look around the beauty of colour change is over and our surrounding looks pretty
dull. We have to face it, it won’t be long and the long wintry days are here. But there are plenty of
club events coming up during the next two months that should help us to get over it. To mention
just a few, there is Kinorama on Nov.18th , the annual Christmas-Market Nov. 25th, a Christmas
Concert Dec. 1st. A Special Christmas dance is scheduled for the Dec. 8th, and our Heimatsängers Christmas Party will be held on Wednesday Dec.12th, of course we all look forward to this
party. Besides all this ongoing activity, everyone will be pretty busy with Christmas shopping, baking, giving or attending Christmas parties - like always November and December are the most hectic months of the year. We look forward to Christmas caroling again this year at the club’s Christmas market and the
Christmas dance.
Working on next year’s Heimatabend program keeps Peter and myself busy. Our Heinz Öttinger made up a list of
wonderful new songs for this event which we are eager to learn. Several people called in to inform us of their willingness to participate again next year. This is really great and we would like to thank them for informing us that early.; this
makes our job so much easier
Ingrid Meier celebrates her 50th Wedding Anniversary on November 26th; Gerda Wunderlich celebrates her 50th Anniversary on December 1st. my best wishes to both of you, good health and many more happy years to come for all of
you.
I will add like most of the time again an attachment for those who are interested of reading it. Ending report with my
best wishes to everyone for a save and very blessed Christmas and a happy New Year.
P.S. Again I added an interesting article. Sorry it is only in German, I don’t have the time to translate it. Until next year
keep on singing and always have a happy smile on your face. Have a wonderful New Year,
Christel Petrowski

Blaue Berge, grüne Täler
Das „Riesengebirg'lers Heimatlied" feierte im Mai dieses Jahres seinen 93. Geburtstag
Es war im Jahr 1914 als der junge Lehrer Othmar Fiebiger an einem herbstlichen Tag wieder einmal ins schöne
Riesengebirge flüchtete, um den Schreckensnachrichten des 1. Weltkrieges zu entfliehen. Fiebiger (21. 04.1886
bis 23.02.1972) war seinerzeit als Dorfschullehrer an der Waldschule im böhmischen Anseith tätig. Man schrieb
das Jahr 1914, als der junge Lehrer seine Gebirgswanderung startete und zur Rast die Peterbaude aufsuchte.
„Soweit man sich erinnert ", sagte Othmar Fiebiger in einem Interview mit Gerhardt Seiffert vom Riesengebirgsboten, „entstand das Riesengebirgslied so: Fröhlich saß ich neben einer Wandergesellschaft in der Glasveranda
der Peterbaude. Nach dem Mittagessen sah eine Dame der Wandergruppe das Wanderbuch in einer Ecke der Peterbaude liegen.
Einschreiben ... hieß es wie im Chor. Ich rief dazwischen: „Aber jeder nur etwas Originelles!" Mit den Worten: „Also fangen sie an!"
schob man mir das Wanderbuch zu. Schweigend und sinnend guckte ich durch die Scheiben der Glasveranda hinab ins Tal und
schrieb ganz einfach in der Mundart des Anseither Tales das auf, was ich sah:
„Bloe Barche, grüne Täla, mitta dren a Heisla klen, herrlich is dos Stöckla Erde, on ich bin ju darf dohem. 0, mei1 liewes
Riesageberche!"
Sonst nichts. In meinem Gedächtnis klang und klangen die Zeilen weiter und gingen nicht aus den Ohren. Auf einer versteckten
Bank am Turnplatz der Anseither Waldschule wurden aus den wenigen Zeilen in kurzer Zeit das Heimatlied mit folgendem Urtext:
Bloe Barche, grüne Täla, metta dren a Heisla klen, herrlich is dos Steckla Erde on ich bin ju dart dohem. Ols ich einst ei's Lond
gezocha, ho'n die Barch mir nochgesahn, mit dar Kendhet, mit dar Jugend, wosste nee, wie mir geschahn:
0 mei' liewes Riesageberche, wu die Elbe su hemlich rennt, wu dar Rüwazohl mit sen'Zwercha heit noch Saga on Märlan spennt:
Riesageberche, Riesageberche meine lewe Hemert du!
Is mir gutt on schlecht gegonga, ho'- gesonga on gelocht; doch ei' moncha bonga Stunda hot mei Herz gonz stell gepocht. On
mich zuchs noch Johr on Stunde wiedo hem ei's Elternhaus, hielt's nee mehr vür lauto Sehnsucht bei dan fremda Leita aus:
O mei' liewes Riesageberche ... usw.
On kemmt's emol zom Begrowa, mücht ihr eiern Wella tun: ock dos Ene, jo dos Ene: Loßt mich ei'do Hemert ruhn. Wird der Herrgott dann druf frocha uwa noch'm Hemertschein, zieh' ich doitsch on stolz on fredich flugs ei's Himmelreich dann nei':
Bin aus'm Newa Riesageberche ....usw.

Diese Dialektdichtung wurde im Juni 1914 in der Festschrift des Trautenauer Gesangvereines „Harmonie" erstmals gedruckt. ImSpätherbst des Jahres 1914 vertonte Vinzenz Hampel (29. 01.1880 bis 27.06.1955), Angehöriger der Hohenelber Liedertafel
das Dialektgedicht für seine eigene Stimme. Hampel war in dieser Zeit Fürsorge-Erzieher in Hohenelbe. Als er das Lied zum ersten Mal seinen Freunden von der Liedertafel vorsang, war der Erfolg überwältigend. Dazu notierte sich Vinzenz Hampel in seinen persönlichen Aufzeichnungen:
„In den folgenden Proben musste ich immer wieder das Lied singen. Es dauerte nicht lange, da sollte das Lied mehrstimmig
gesungen werden. Ich schrieb es für Männerchor mit Baritonsolo und so wurde es Mitte März 1915 im Schützenhaus in Hohenelbe erstmals aufgeführt". Weiter führte der junge Lehrer selbst aus, dass er mit den ruhig angehenden Achtelnoten den
bedächtigen Riesengebirgler nachahmen wollte und führte die Melodie im gleichen Rhythmus weiter, um mit dem Refrain die tiefe
Heimatliebe zum Ausdruck zu bringen.
In Hohenelbe und Umgebung war das Lied schnell zu einer Volksweise geworden, lange bevor es den Einzug in deutsche
Liederbücher hielt. Eine Klavierausgabe des Riesengebirgsliedes wurde seinerzeit von einem Musikverlag abgelehnt, so das Vinzenz Hampel im Selbstverlag eine Liedkarte und eine Ausgabe für Gesang und Klavier herausgab und konnte beobachten, wie
eine Stadt nach der anderen von dem Lied erobert wurde. Wie schnell es in die Herzen der Menschen aus dem Riesengebirge
drang, mag darin bewiesen sein, das bereits während des 1. Weltkrieges das Riesengebirgslied mit solcher Popularität bedacht
war, dass diese Zeilen auf ausdrücklichem Wunsch des verstorbenen Riesengebirgsbaudenbesitzers Endler an seinem offenem
Grab gesungen wurde. Der Text in der heimischen Mundart war schnell in aller Munde, so dass das Lied bei fast allen Gebirgsfestlichkeiten angestimmt wurde.
Nur dem Schöpfer Othmar Fiebiger war es entgangen, wie beliebt seine Dichtung inzwischen geworden war. Wie anders ist es
sonst zu erklären, das er eines Tages verdutzt seinen Schreckensteiner Freund fragte, woher das schöne Lied denn stamme,
welches er gerade von einem Lautenspieler zu Beginn einer Festveranstaltung gesungen hörte. Unter dem einsetzenden Spott
musste er eingestehen, dass es seine Zeilen waren, die er einst ins Hüttenbuch der Peterbaude geschrieben hatte. Damit nun
dieses schöne Werk nicht nur die Einheimischen singen sollten, hat Othmar Fiebiger seine Dialektdichtung ins Hochdeutsche
übertragen und wenige Jahre später, es war im Jahre 1920, fand das inzwischen zum Volkslied avancierte Heimatlied der Riesengebirgler seinen Einzug ins Liederbuch des Deutschen Sängerbundes. Auch außerhalb des schönsten deutschen Mittelgebirges setzte sich das Lied in der Bevölkerung durch, was zahlreiche Auszeichnungen im In- und Ausland beweisen. So ist
bekannt geworden, dass Anfang der Dreißiger Jahre das Lied bei einem Sängerwettstreit in Brasilien den 1. Preis errungen habe.
Ob der gute Othmar Fiebiger geahnt hatte, was ihm da seinerzeit in der Peterbaude zugefallen war und nun zu einem unsterblich
gewordenen Lied gewandelt hat, ist nicht bekannt geworden.
Mit seinen Zeilen hatte Othmar Fiebiger den Kern der Herzen seiner Schlesier und Sudetendeutschen getroffen, doch sollte sich
später dieser Erfolg negativ für den Dichter erweisen. An dem Urtext des Liedes wurde in der Folgezeit nur wenig verändert. Statt
der Wiederholung des Wortes Riesengebirge im Refrain wurde u.a. auch „Märchengebirge", „schönes Gebirge" oder „deutsches
Gebirge" gesungen. Da Letzteres in die Druckfassung genommen war, verboten es die Tschechen für jede öffentliche Aufführung
nach 1945.
Fiebiger ist am 21. April 1886 in Attenbruch im Riesengebirge geboren und wurde nach einer frohen Jugend in der schönen Landschaft des Riesengebirges nach seinem Studium Lehrer im sudetendeutschen Anseith. Wie alle Deutschen musste auch er seine
geliebte Riesengebirgsheimat verlassen. Zunächst verjagten ihn 1945 die Tschechen von der böhmischen Seite des Gebirges.
Nachdem er 1946 auch von den Polen abgeschoben wurde, begann er in einem kleinen Ort bei Erfurt mit einem Neuaufbau seiner beruflichen Laufbahn. In der späteren DDR erhoffte er sich die Ruhe für seine weitere Schaffenskraft. Der Schein aber trog.
Ost- Deutschlands verbrüderte sich mit der Tschechoslowakei und Polen und es dauerte nicht lange, da hatte man den Schöpfer
des Riesengebirglers Heimatlied, (Schlesische Nachrichten 12/2004 KULTUR / HISTORISCHES 13) welches in den Herzen der
Vertriebenen zu keiner Zeit verstummt war, erkannt. Die neuen Machthaber in der DDR nahmen Anstoß daran, das Fiebiger von
einem „deutschen Gebirge" sprach, wo es nach dem neuen Sprachgebrauch der DDR, der Polen und der Tschechen in dieser
Landschaft kein deutsches Land gegeben hat.
Einmal entdeckt, wurde die Volkspolizei beim Dichter ein ständiger ungebetener Gast. Eine Haussuchung löste die andere ab und
alles Liedgut, Noten und weitere Texte beschlagnahmten die neuen Machthaber im mitteldeutschen Raum. Das Riesengebirgslied
wurde auch in der DDR offiziell verboten, wie auch jeder Heimatgedanke an die deutschen Ostgebiete den Vertriebenen untersagt
wurde. Da die Machthaber in dem Teil Deutschlands den Dichter nicht zur Ruhe kommen ließen, entschloss er sich, einen
weiteren Wohnungswechsel zu vollziehen. Sein Weg führte ihn in die Bundesrepublik und Othmar Fiebiger fand in Bensheim an
der Bergstraße eine neue Bleibe. Voller Freude verfasste er in der Bundesrepublik neue Gedichte und schuf Sinnsprüche. Seinem
inzwischen vierstrophigen Riesengebirgslied fügte er eine neue Strophe, den 5. Vers, hinzu:
Und kehr'n wir, will's Gott, nach Jahren wieder heim in unser Land, wo des Berggeist's Quellen rauschen und wo unsere
Wiege stand; dann ans Werk, räumt Schutt und Asche, lasst uns Feld und Häuser bau'n und mit Tränen in den Augen
lächelnd auf zum Himmel schaun:
0, mein liebes Riesengebirge,wo die Elbe so heimlich rinnt, wo der Rübezahl mit seinen Zwergen heut' noch Sagen und
Märchen spinnt. Riesengebirge, deutsches Gebirge, meine liebe Heimat du!

Membership Treasurer’s Report - Brian Dimock
I’ll start off with some belated anniversary wishes to two of our member couples. Unfortunately, this information was
passed on to me after the September/October paper was published. On behalf of all members and the Board of Directors, Happy 50th Anniversary to Maria and Joe Sanseng (September 28th) and Happy 40th Anniversary to Cobie and
Rainer Stimming (September 2nd).
Well, the year is almost over and there are still some outstanding membership dues. Club Loreley relies on membership dues to assist in the day to day operation of our Club. Please take a moment and send in your 2007 dues if you
haven’t already. Thank you.
Congratulations go out to the following members who have reached the 50, 25 and 10 year milestones as members of

The members listed above will be invited to our Christmas Dance on December 8th to be presented with their awards.
A suggestion was made at a recent Board meeting to also recognize members when they reach the various 5 year
milestones, beginning at the 20 year level. The primary reason for doing this is that many members are with us for a
good length of time but for one reason or another, they never reach the 25 or 50 year milestones. This was unanimously agreed to so, beginning in this issue, and continuing with the last issue of each year, we will start recognizing
those members who have reached the 20, 30, 35, 40 and 45 year membership milestones. Therefore, congratulations
to the following members:
20 Year
35 Year
40 Year

Happy New Year. Good health to all,

Loreley Singer Report (Italy trip, missed publishing - sorry!) - Helga Gausrab
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe put so much emphasis into his verses as he described Italy with all
his love for this country. And a few members of the “Loreley Singers” were so fortunate to find out,
what our most beloved Poet meant with his poems and stories so long ago.
On April 9, 2007 we met with singers from other choirs of the German- Canadian Choir Association
in Toronto at Pearson Airport for a Choir trip to Italy. About 125 people came together and started on a
wonderful trip to a country full of history, sunshine, wine and song. And all of us were wearing our red
windbreakers, as a must for identification just in case someone got lost and also as admition for sight
seeing places.
A long flight through the night brought us to Frankfurt were we waited patiently for the connecting flight
to Rome. And the morning of the 10. of April saw us in sunny Rome. Mind you, three busses waited for us and
we had to drive another 292 km to Sorrento. But that was ok, as we knew, that a visit to the eternal City was in
the itinerary anyway.
In Frascati we stopped for our first lunch, which was a real treat. Red and white wine, cold pork, cheese, good bread, olives, and
three Musicians serenaded us with wonderful songs.
A fantastic start to our Italian adventure.
The drive to Sorrento along a highway similar to our 401 had most of us sleeping or just starring at the italian countryside. High
mountains, rolling hills, unusually buildings, laundry hanging out of a lot of balconies or just windows, italian Umbrella Pines, lots
of traffic. And then we passed Naples and had our first glimpse of the Gulf of Naples. Wow!!! High mountains still on our left and
blue shimmering water far below on our right. What a picture!!! Sorrento greeted us with blooming Orange- and Lemon Trees,
Roses, all sorts of lovely flowers and neck breaking, speeding traffic in very small streets. Our bus drivers were marvelous!!
We stopped at a Service station in the middle of the city and all had to get out of the busses. Somebody pointed up the mountain
and high on top we saw our first Hotel. “Hotel Gran Paradiso”! But how to get there as it was clear, the busses could not drive the
very small laneway that was going up! Oh well…… Two little shuttle busses from the Hotel turned up and took turns to bring us
and our suitcases to our destination. And as all was done and settled, we could finally have our deserved restful night!! But the
night view from the “Hotel” over the Gulf of Naples was fantastic. Warm air, one could sense the water down below, mountain
ranges on both sides, lights shimmering in the distance. Wow!!!
After a good breakfast next morning we were off to see Pompeii, the town on the Sea!! My guide book says “ On a summer morning in 79 AD, Pompeii was buried after an unexpected and dramatic eruption of the volcano Mount Vesuvius. The tragedy left little
possibility of survival for the estimated 10,000 people who lived in the town.” Can you imagine? Pompeii big like that to have a
population of 10,000 people? In the year 79 Anno Domine?? I was totally impressed with the size of the city, with the architecture,
with the standing walls, the streets, and the thought of having all of that buried under 7meters of ashes. And for 700 years lost in
history. A farmer ploughed his land and found a vase which his King recognized as a piece from that lost city of Pompeii on the
Sea. And digging began.…..And we stood at the same place were people led an every day, busy life 2000 years ago!! So hard to
imagine. But our guide Francesca brought everything to live with her knowledge and her enthusiasm.
Well, back to our day. Still Wednesday, April 11. After all that walking through the years before 79 AD we had a good Pizza lunch,
drove back to the Hotel on top of the mountain and prepared for an Evening Concert with a choir from Salerno. The concert was a
success. Alvin Reimer conducted us with his usual enthusiasm, our Monica Cotton helped us along with the piano and our mixed
choir sang real good. The Salerno choir sang a lot of classical music and earned our applause.
Next day we were of to the “Isle of Capri”. What a Fairy Tale rock in the middle of the Mediterranean. Beautiful gardens, little cute
houses, up and down streets, big impressive Villas, (like the one that Friedrich Krupp build. Probably on the best spot of the Island), and blue water as far as the eye can see. Paradise!!! A boat trip around the isle was also very much an education, and a
disappointment as we could not see anywhere a beach!! So much beautiful water and no swimming !!! Well I guess, if you were
somewhat rich and had a yacht, you could always jump in the water from the boat!!!
Friday the 13th!!! The right day to visit the Mount Vesuvius!! It is said, that it is still “cooking” on the inside. Well, I was very much
impressed by the still visible flow of the lava from years ago. Like a stony river bed between two mountains. The last eruption was
in 1944 and now the experts think, that it will not be long before that Vesuvius starts rumbling again. A sigh of relief, that it did not
do that while we were there!! A few of our group was brave enough to climb the last stretch to the moldering crater and had a look
inside. I was not one of them! But I took pictures of cute little Salamanders while waiting for the climbers to come back to the busses.
After a good supper a few of us went to see a musical production named “Sorrento Musical” at a theatre downtown Sorrento. Two
centuries of napolitan dances, costumes and music. Wonderful!! We were greeted with a glass Champagne or a glass of wine and
got preferred treatment as Canadians. What more did we want!!!!
But then we had to pack for the drive to Rome early Saturday morning. Good bye Sorrento, good bye Gulf of Naples, good bye
blue waters.
A bit of confusion at the Service station as the shuttle busses had not enough room to bring all of us down from the “Hotel Gran
Paradiso” in a hurry. But that was settled eventually and we were of to Rome.
In Rome a real nice guide, Gabi, waited for us. At least for my group. (We always had three groups and a guide for each group.)
Gabi took us through the Vatican and that was just out of this world!!! How can I describe all the beauty around, the marble figurines, the paintings, the architecture. I don’t know!!! A must see for sure!! And we could wish a Bride and her Groom all the Best for

their Wedding. They, of course, did not have to stand in queue like we did as tourists. Later we checked in the Hotel “Golden Tulip
Bellambriana”. Nice rooms, good food and a good night sleep.
On Sunday we found ourselves with lots and lots of other people at St.Peters Square in front of the Vatican to celebrate a Mass in
the honor of Pope Benedicts 80th Birthday. And what a celebration that was!! A festive feeling surrounded the whole square. Even
the weather was at its best. Sun and blue sky all day long. Pope Benedict blessed the crowd and went on his “walk about”. A children’s Choir sang beautifully, and, of course, among many others, one could see the Bavarian Flags all over the place. And most
impressive, the Swiss Guards in their colorful uniforms. But for Joe and me waited a special surprise. Joe’s daughter Barbara flow
in from London, England for the weekend and we met at Bernini’s Fountain at St. Peters Square.
Later on we went on a tour with our guide Gabi through “Old Rome”. The ruins of the Forum of Julius Caesar, the Arch of Constantine, the Colosseum, Circus Maximum, the Roman Forum, etc…. unbelievable!! History all around us!! What a day we had! Barbara stayed with us till Monday evening. She was our tour guide for the day. And so we were heading out on the “Metro” (Subway)
to look at the Spanish Steps first. A lovely sight to be seen!! 147 steps up and up and up!! Decorated with hug pots of flowering
Azaleas. At the bottom of these steps stands the interesting “Barcaccia” fountain. (the old Barge). Hard to be seen as a lot of
tourists cool their hot feet in the water. And from one fountain to the next. The “Trevi” Fountain had to be on our agenda too.
Throw a coin in the fountain or drink its water and you will come back to Rome for sure.
But now on to Vatican City to take a glimpse of the “Sistine chapel”. We had to line up along a high and long wall. But only for
about ½ an hour and we reached the doors of the Vatican Museum. And an other fantastic tour began. I have a hard time to describe the beauty, the splendor, the richness, the loveliness of that, what awaited us. Age old Architecture, Pictures, Statues, Furniture, Gardens, Tapestries, Wall Paintings. We kept on walking, looking in awe and time stood still.
A long walk through rooms, corridors filled with all the richness and décor one could imagine (or not), we finally reached our goal!!
The “Sistine Chapel”!! Michelangelo’s Master piece painted on ceiling and walls around us. It is so hard to describe ones feeling to
stand in the presents of such Artwork!!! I just have no words for any description. But one thing is for sure. In order to really see,
understand and admire these fantastic works of Art, one has to have a lot of time on ones hands. And that is true for all of Rome
and the Italian Landscape!!! Like one of the Singers quoted: All of Italy is a Museum.
And another nice moment for us in the Vatican. Mass was given in the late afternoon, and we heard a School Choir from Mississauga singing. It was good to listen to these young voices and later look at their surprised faces as we told them that we are
neighbors in Ontario. But we had to be ready to go again and on this Tuesday our three busses drove from Rome to Montecatini.
A cozy little town in the middle of the Toscana. As we learned later, a town with lots of Spas and thermal bathhouses. But before
we reached our destination, we had lunch at a Winery. At “Palazzo Bandino” we are being spoiled with very good wine samples,
Grappa, and a hearty lunch. The surroundings are beautiful and so peaceful. I wish, we could stay a while.
Later we checked into our “Hotel Biondi” in Montecatini, enjoyed a good supper and had a choir practice. On Wednesday we took
in a guided tour of Florence. Beautiful city with a figure of Michelangelo’s David, the most perfect example of a human body. Not
my words, our guide told us that. And, of course, lots of other interesting buildings, statuettes, and lots of little stores with the most
intriguing gold jewellery. In the evening we had our second concert. A choir from Montecatini joined us. A good time was had by
all.
Next day we took in a guided tour of Lucca. Again, a beautiful little, very old city in the Toscana. Hometown of Giacomo Puccini.
We found ourselves in an old Cathedral, Alvin Reimer collected all of us and we started to sing. We sang ”Sanctus” by Sebastian
Bach in German and all was still. Even a few rowdy youngster were listening. A German tourist couple had tears in their eyes. We
moved their hearts with our song. A most wonderful experience for all of us, And then the busses drove us to Pisa and there it
stood….. the Tower of Pisa in all its “leaning” glory. That building will stand quite a bit longer yet.Another point of interest. Galileo
was born in Pisa in 1173.
Friday, April 20th, a day of rest for Joe, me and some other people. A guided tour to Sienna was planed. But a day in Montecatini
was restful and nice. The weather is still sunny and very warm. So we were ready for our drive north to Lake Garda. Saturday
morning we left Montecatini, had a real good lunch in Mantova with a guided tour through this very old little city. Drove through the
Toscana landscape, rolling hills, endless wide fields, silver Olive trees and large Grape plantations. And then, suddenly, high
mountain ranges were on all sides of us and the landscape was changed totally. The highway still reminded me of our 401 and the
traffic too was fast and furious.
The busses were driving toward Riva del Garda, a little tourist town at the very north end of Lake Garda. Our bus stopped at “Hotel Luise” and we had nice rooms again with a lovely mountain view. But as tired as we were, the rumor went around, that a
Choir and Orchestra from Chemnitz (former East Germany) was giving a concert in one of the churches. So we had another wonderful experience at a moments notice.
Next day we were ready for a boat trip on Lake Garda. The lake is the third biggest lake in Italy with 340 m deep, 52 km long and
surrounded by high mountains. That boat ride was wonderful! We stopped at Malcesine, a little tourist town on the west side of the
lake. From there our busses took us to the end of Lake Garda. There we walked through Sirmione, an old roman city on a small
piece of land, that goes into Lake Garda like a tongue. Most of us went with small boats around this little city and were impressed
with old, old buildings from the Roman times. Like ruins of guard towers and a big bath house.
On Monday, April 23rd we finally saw Venice!!! We approached the city by boat and were amazed!! We embarked near St. Mark’s
Square and were greeted by oodles of tourists and doves. But what a city!! Again lots of old buildings, beautiful churches, small
and smallest streets. And, of course, the many canals with their funny little bridges and the many gondolas. And the air was clean
too. Not a bad smell around!! We had supper in one of the little Restaurants and as it happened, a man approached us and

November & December Report, Vice President - Ed Albrecht
I wish to apologize to all my volunteers from Fiesta as I had said at the Semi-annual meeting, I am now sending the
report that did not get into the last edition of the newspaper because of a computer glitch so it is in this edition.
The attendance at the semi-annual meeting was a little low this time. I am sure that people are very busy and I hope
that they get to read the newspaper. Discussion was brought up about how to generate more money and cut costs.
As I had mentioned at the meeting I am going to try and cut costs on our Fiesta float by asking for donations towards
this project. You can send your donations at any time to our treasurer or to myself before June. The cost of the materials to build the float have been increasing each year. Any financial support will be much appreciated.
Karneval this year will be on January 26, 2008. There will again be prizes for best costumes so I hope to see you all
there dressed up. The band playing will be Euro Connection which did a great job last year. The Loreley Youth Dancers will also be performing their Funkengarde. As you can see in the flyer in this edition of the newspaper times and
prices are listed. I look forward to seeing a full house as this is the big event of the winter.
It might be a little early but we will soon be looking for 2 young ladies to represent us as Miss Loreley and Mini Miss
Loreley. There is a certain criteria to be met to be eligible for either of these positions. Please contact me if interested.
Since this will be the last report before Christmas I want to express my warmest wishes for a happy and safe holiday
season for each and every one of our members.
