Hello, I’m Kathy Hofmann, and I’m relatively new to Schaffhausen. I moved here in late January of 2012. Thanks to this group, I’ve made friends and have transitioned into living here quite well. So that’s why I decided to head up this group at least for a while, to help other expats adjust to living here as well as making a few new friends.

We are going to start meeting the first and third Thursdays of the month. The first will always be at the Gueterhof, the third Thursday will be a change of scenery so keep your eyes peeled. Drop me a line if you would like to become more involved with the group. Perhaps organizing an event yourself? Let me know if you wouldn't mind hosting an event when I'm out of town.

I’ll try to meet each of you if I can. The better we know each other, the better this group can be.

One thing I’d like to pursue is volunteer opportunities for expats. (In my other life (pre-trailing spouse), I was a volunteer coordinator. Just because we can’t speak the language (yet), doesn’t mean we can’t contribute to our community. Please let me know if it’s something you would be interested in doing.

If you should happen to see Helen G, stop and thank her for starting this group. We’ll sure miss her leadership. She’s moved on to handling the Lipstick Ladies Group of Schaffhausen. Let me know if you’re interested. It’s a fun bunch.

In the meantime, enjoy your stay here in Schaffhausen, and let’s use the Expat Meetup group to make the most of it!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
