In late October, members of Elder's German Club visited areas of Cincinnati to learn more about the Queen City's rich German heritage.

The club heard stories of immigration from Mr. Manfred Otto Schnetzer (pictured left) while visiting the German Heritage Museum in West Fork Park, which serves as the focal point in presenting and displaying German-American culture.

The group was also treated to a tour of the Rookwood Pottery Company by carver George Hibben (pictured right) before settling down for lunch at historic Mecklenburg Gardens in Corryville.  Since 1865, Mecklenburg Gardens has stayed true to its tradition by playing host to meetings of German Heritage groups, preparing traditional German dishes, and serving up the finest steins of German Lager in the city!

Elder's German Club is moderated by German and Spanish teacher Mrs. Karin Kraeling, who chaperoned the field trip along with Religion teacher Ms. Julie Kurzhals.
