Dear members,
April flowers were blooming at our annual Frühlingsgala, as over 90 elegantly
dressed guests danced the night away, to the wonderful music of the Norbert
Ludwig Orchestra. As usual, our gourmets delighted in feasting on the
delectable meal presented by our CIA Dean Emeritus, Fritz Sonnenschmidt,
Pâtissier Helmut Loibl, CTI BOCES Chef Dan Tierney, and the BOCES Gala
Team. If you were unable to attend, why not consider giving yourself the
pleasure of attending next year?
Because we are concerned for your safety, as well as your enjoyment, I am
delighted to tell you that an AED (automated external defibrillator) has been purchased and will be installed
shortly. Training in its use will be made available to all interested members. Watch your newsletter for the
announcement.
It's great to greet our returning snowbirds at our Wednesday lunches, Friday Night Dinners, and the Biergartens.
Now we hope you eagerly awaited for the inauguration of our First Annual Maifest. I know it was pleasurable
for all who attended. We plan to build on this event next year, just as our Oktoberfest has grown over the past 6
years. Thank you to all the volunteers, without whose help it could not have succeeded.
The Germania Singers' "Roses for Mother's Day" Spring Concert delighted our members and guests, as always.
The Kinderchor enchanted the audience, singing many of their old favorites, and including many new songs as
well. It is sad to think that this may be their last performance, as after many years of dedication, Frau Helga
Baker has reluctantly given up her baton. We are hoping that someone will step forward, willing to fill her
shoes. The sold out crowd enjoyed the delicious dinner of Chicken Paprikash. It was another wonderful
evening to remember.
Remember to attend the annual meeting and election of officers and trustees on June 15th, at 7:30 pm. Please
consider running for an available position, and joining committees. The bartenders would love to welcome
more members to help, as would the kitchen staff and volunteer servers. The building and grounds committee is
always looking for members who are willing to use their expertise in these areas. We are thankful for all the
enthusiastic volunteering you have already done. For example, you may have noticed how sparkling fresh the
clubhouse walls look, thanks to the efforts of Peter Licis and his son. Watch for more upgrades in the next few
months.
Enjoy the rest of the spring and summer months. We hope to see you at the clubhouse or at the pavilion often.
Sincerely,
Carol Ann Fischer, President

GERMANIA MEN & LADIES SINGERS
On February 22nd the Singers made a sauerbraten Friday night dinner for Germania. Ulrike Engelhardt, with Margarethe
Killmer’s help, learned to prepare this meal. The lady Singers assisted in the kitchen and served. It was a very successful
meal.
On Sunday, May 5th the Singers held their Annual Spring Concert, Roses for Mother's Day, under Director George
Calabrese. A selection of songs dedicated to our Mutter, Grand Mutter and the Blessed Mother were sung. The men
chorus sang Schwarze Rose, Rosemarie and dedicated it to Rosemarie, Helmut’s wife, and he presented her with the dark
rose. Solos were sung during the concert by Helga Baker and Helga Nowak-Razey. George and Elizabeth Calabrese
played a selection of music on the violin in reference to roses. The day was beautiful. It was well attended. Katherine
Ulrich played the piano and our Director gave each lady Singer a red rose. Eight members of the Kingston Maennerchor
and Damenchor including NYS Saengerbund President Herman Koemel joined us. Margarethe Killmer, Monica
Jorgensen and George Englehardt prepared a delicious meal of chicken paprika; everyone was pleased. Barbara Troan,
under the supervision of Helmet Loibl, made the Crème Brulee dessert. Joe Unger provided the dancing music. Helga
Baker will give her report on the Kinderchor Concert. The Singers thanked Philip Franzen-Nicholson for being our music
editor. Helen Schimpf broke her collarbone and could not play the piano for the children, Katherine Ulrich stepped in.
There are DVD’s and CD’s available from the Spring Concert for sale. Cost is $5. Contact Philip at 845-724-3209.
In March, the Singers expressed their sympathy to Fred and Nancy Steimer on the passing of her mother
who lived in Florida. Thinking of You cards were sent to Cal Baker and Hugo Fueglein.
Thank you Singers for the beautiful flower arrangement you presented to me at our last meeting. We will
return to singing in late August. See you at the Germania Oktoberfest! -Pat Kemmerer

THE HALL WAS FILLED WITH GREEN AND GOOD CHEER
Many thanks to all who attended the St. Patrick's Day Party which was held on March 9th. A great evening of fun
and Shamrock infused Gemutlichkeit was had by all, with over $2200 of net event proceeds being turned back to the
Club. In addition, Bar receipts of $1200
were generated. There were 120 excellent
Corned Beef and Cabbage dinners served
under the leadership of Chef Margarethe
Killmer, with assistance in the kitchen by
Rob Rose, Mike Reichert, Gary
Schonmann, and Peggy Ren. Servers were
John Kelly, Kathy Whalen, Eileen
Sweeney, and Ed Kelley. A big shout out
goes to Vinny for his usual wonderful
performance handling the dishwashing and
especially to Grete Licis, who helped
manage cleanup after a long day of activity.
MacCana did a masterful job of playing
Irish tunes that had the audience clapping,
dancing, and even performing a
spontaneous high-kick routine! (No names
will be mentioned, because what happens at
Germania, STAYS at Germania!) The Irish
Stepdancers were lead once again by
Ashley and we all very much appreciated
their skills and enthusiasm. Anneliese
Kreig graciously helped run the raffle
which generated $377. Peggy Ren kindly
donated raffle prizes of Bailey's Irish
Cream and wine. Finally, Peter Licis and
Bill Reuter donated their time to bar tend.
Their execution was flawless!
Please mark your calendars for next year's
event which will be held once again on a
Saturday evening (March 8th, 2014) and
feature the music of MacCana.
********** St. Pat's Hats **********
I extend my personal thanks to the committee which made this event happen. Many hours of planning, decorating,
and hands-on work by Ed Kelley, Pat Kelley (chief decorator!), and Peggy Ren enabled the event to be a success.
Thanks to one and all.
Stephen Ren, Event Chairperson
Editor's Note: I think I can safely add this note on behalf of everyone that attended... Thank YOU Steve for superb
leadership, all your time and hard work, and a great opening speech and prayer before dinner!

FIRST MAIFEST HELD MAY 17th & 18th
In an unofficial poll at the ticket booth, 79 festival attendees were asked "How did you hear about the Maifest?" and
the results show us that (a) advertising in the Poughkeepsie Journal is a worthy investment and (b) word of mouth
really does work! Some examples of "word of mouth" we were given include "someone told me about it when I was
at the clubhouse", "my friend invited me" and "my [mom] is a member and told me about it".
Imagine what we could learn if we put such an official poll into place at our events, and polled a majority of
attendees rather than a small percentage of attendees?
Look for the August Germania Newsletter for a post-Maifest news article and more pictures!

SCHUHPLATTLER NEWS
Germania Almrausch Schuhplattler Verein
We welcome our newest adult members Kevin & Heather Blatz and John & Marijo Weinzierl, and Kindergruppe
member Erin Ricker!
It was quiet during the winter months but now that Spring has arrived, dance rehearsals have resumed. We have
rehearsals scheduled for June 14th and June 28th. If you are interested in observing or joining, please come, or check
with our President Chris at 845-452-6219 on future dates. We welcome members of all ages, children and adults,
associate and dance memberships, and accordion players too!
We are thinking of Paula DeMarco, daughter of Almrausch Life Member Mark Delaney and past Germania
bartender. Wishing you a speedy recovery.
Get well wishes to Grete's sister, Erna Schneider, who resides in Germany.
Almrausch Visits Edelweiss Westchester: Bavarian Club Edelweiss Westchester held their 80th Anniversary on
April 27, 2013. It was a festive occasion. Music was provided by the Norbert Ludwig Orchestra. The cocktail
buffet and dinner exceeded our expectations! The Kindergruppe, Volkstanzgruppe and the Schuhplattler dancers
performed for the enthusiastic crowd. Our new members, Marijo and John Weinzierl, and Gábor and Christine
Pattantyús were invited to participate in the Ehrentanz with Bayern Verein Newark. It was a wonderful opportunity
to renew old friendships and greet those we have known for many years. We hope that we can remain in closer
contact in the future.
Our first group performance of the year was at Germania's 1st annual Maifest (below), and we had a good time.

OKTOBERFEST VOLUNTEERS
We would easily have it covered if every member took just one shift! Unfortunately, only about 1/4 of the
membership volunteers for the Oktoberfest, and those 100 members work multiple shifts, multiple days. Let's
give those members a chance to enjoy the festival too and increase Oktoberfest volunteer participation this year
to 250 members. Look for the sign up book at the clubhouse soon and help us with the club's biggest fundraiser!
DESPERATELY SEEKING COOKS
Without volunteer cooks, we would need to take a huge "bite" out of Germania's calendar of events and steady
income. If you enjoy cooking, please help us! If you want to learn more about cooking for large parties, please
let us teach you! Please call the club today at 845-471-0609 with your name & phone number and say "I am
interested in cooking."
VOLUNTEERS NEEDED AT FRIDAY DINNERS & BIERGARTENS
Meet fellow members while supporting your club. We can’t do it without you! Duties include set up, grilling,
plating food, washing pots and cleaning kitchen, waiter/waitress and clean up. Take a look at the calendar and
please call the club today at 845-471-0609 with your name, phone number and date or dates you are available.

GET WELL WISHES to DARRYL BIELSKI'S MOTHER was hospitalized for a few days with a
heart issue; TAMMY MAIER has undergone two surgeries this year and we wish her the best in her
recovery; and to JANETT FRANK who is feeling under the weather lately.
Deepest sympathy to Jennifer Reichert and her family on the passing of her father RAYMOND J. SCHUMACHER,
82, of Wyoming, NY, who died April 8, 2013. A resident of Wyoming County since 1973, he owned and operated
Schum Acres Dairy Farm in Wyoming before retiring in 1995. He served his country honorably with the United
States Army from 1954 to 1956. He was predeceased by his loving wife of 45 years, Carol Bennett Schumacher.
Survivors include three sons: John (Debra) Schumacher of Naples, Joseph (Jackie) Schumacher of Cody, Wy., and
Jerald (Jackie) Schumacher of Wyoming; two daughters, Joanne Schumacher of Warsaw and Jennifer (Michael)
Reichert of Pleasant Valley, N.Y.; two sisters, a brother, 10 grandchildren, 8 great-grandchildren and several nieces
and nephews.
The TD BANK FIVE BORO BIKE TOUR was held May 5, 2013
and Germania Almrausch members ROBB ROSE, GERTJAN
DOEDEE, MIKE REICHERT, ALEX REICHERT and BEV
ORSER were amongst over 30,000 other cyclists that biked
through the five boroughs of New York City! A portion of the
bike tour registration fee was donated to charity. Congratulations!
Thoughts from Bev: Team Almrausch was on the move early that
Sunday. It was a mad rush for the train at 4:32am NOT 4:42am!
Who was checking that train schedule? When we arrived at
Grand Central, we entertained ourselves by "people watching" as
every train emptied more riders
with their bikes. We waited by
the kiosk for our 6th rider, Laura, a friend of Robb's who was coming in on another
train. New York is strangely quiet in the early morning hours on a Sunday, but as we
rode downtown toward the starting area, there were more and more cyclists converging
from everywhere. The start was a mass of people, filling the street as far as you could
see (if you're tall enough)! There were 32,000 cyclists on a rolling start, and it really
was quite amazing (and very crowded). Big bikes, little bikes, tandem bikes, reclining
bikes, bikes with strollers and pushing wheelchairs, any type of bicycle you can imagine
was there - it was absolutely amazing. The sun was out and it warmed up into a
perfectly beautiful blue-sky day as we rode north through Central Park to the top of
Manhattan, then into the Bronx, and back over into Manhattan again for our first rest
stop. Water, bananas, bagels and all sorts of other snacks everywhere! We continued
down the FDR Drive on the east side, and then a trip over the Queensboro bridge
brought us into Queens. We rode on through Queens and into Brooklyn, (who would
ever think they would be riding a bike on the BQE)? The view was amazing from the
massive Verrazano Bridge, and we finally found ourselves at the festival site in Staten
Island. Finally, the cyclist only trip aboard the Staten Island Ferry brought us back to
lower Manhattan. We still were not done! We rode up Sixth Avenue again (this time
with traffic!), and arrived at that wonder in mid-town, the Hofbräuhaus. We were
finally sitting down, relaxing and enjoying the evening, exhausted but also exhilarated.
We proceeded to devour our Jägerschnitzel (with all the trimmings) and our ice cold
beers. ALL FIVE Boroughs and about 50 miles for Team Almrausch! For a first timer, it
was quite an experience. Who is coming with us next year?
Our thoughts and prayers are with our friend CAL BAKER.

Keith McArthur's son gave birth to a baby boy, LOGAN CHARLES MCARTHUR on May 8th.
Congratulations to Junior Member ALEXANDRA REICHERT, daughter of Michael and
Jennifer. Alexandra qualified for an Arlington High School academic honor key by
maintaining an overall weighted average of 85 or better while at Arlington High School. She
will attend An Honor Key Recognition Program in May along with other eligible recipients.
Alexandra went to Disney World for her Class of 2013 Senior trip. She stayed right in the
Disney Park and was able to park hop all weekend. In addition she attended a Pit Bull
concert and Class of 2013 graduation party hosted at Universal Studios. She will be
graduating June 22nd and is planning to attend SUNY Oneonta. Congratulations Alex on
your accomplishments, and the scholarships you have earned, and you know we all wish you
the best at College!
KATHERINE ULRICH donated two new benches to Germania in honor of the memory of her husband
JOSEPH ULRICH. They are located just outside the clubhouse bar exit, facing the soccer field, which is
perfect for anyone who is at the clubhouse but wants to take some time to watch a soccer game or
practice.
Our condolences to member Keith McArthur on the passing of his mother REGINA HELEN "JEAN" MCARTHUR, a
Beacon resident who died at age 82 on May 25, 2013.
Happy 20th wedding anniversary ROBB & KAREN ROSE! The couple married in Jamaica on June 5, 1993 and held a
reception at the Germania Pavilion upon their return.
Thank you CAROL ANN FISHER & MELISSA WAGNER for you generous
donations toward the Maifest advertising fee.
Germania Heritage Project
Book Proposal to be ready January 2014
Help Germania preserve the history of our club and members! We are looking for stories
from our members about their family’s immigration experiences (you do not need to
have come from Germany to be included in this opportunity). Please join the Germania
Heritage Project so we can document the story of immigrants to America, their struggles
and contributions, through the experiences of our members.
If you have not already done so, contact Georgia Herring-Trott at (845)452-2911 or at [email protected] to
be included in the project or for more information.

EDITOR’S CORNER
My friends at Germania and many of the "regulars" at the club know I have been dealing with chronic low back pain
and sciatica, the issues of late being due to another herniated disc (my first being 15 years ago). So, it's not always
easy to come home from work and then sit some more at my home computer to monitor the club related emails,
download and organize the pictures I take at club events, and then put together this newsletter. The June issue is a
bit later than I hoped it would be, and I just wish to thank you for your patience, and express my apology if any of the
messages within are too late.
