South Sound German Club

I'd like to start a South Sound German Club that will meet above the Hess' Bakery and Delicatessen & German Pastry Shop on a consistent basis.

I feel that having a gathering in this space would be incredibly fun and rewarding.

I know my grandfather would be proud to have the space being used for such a wonderful cause.

Please join me for a gathering to share memories, culture, ideas, and support of a brand new South Sound German Club!

If someone feels called to lead/facilitate this group, I would love to have you do so. Gladly, I will provide the space.

Since I have never organized or facilitated a German Group  before if you have experience with groups like this, your help and contribution of time and talent will be greatly appreciated. I look forward to seeing this club blossom and grow!

In Memory of Anthony Hess, my Opa, and greatest man I've ever known.

    Spent a delightful 2 hours with ladies and gents of German persuasion! Sausages and pasteries were consumed, along with several cups of coffee. Conversation flowed easily between German and English. Jokes were told. History recalled. An observation was made that this group contained a wide range of ages, representative of people in our community. It's not all old people! Come along. We'll be enjoying "Gemutlichkeit" again soon!!!!

    We will meet upstairs, above the Hess German Bakery & Deli at 2:00, then head downstairs to enjoy some authentic German Pastries, wonderful delights, and great company! See you soon!

    No, I didn't know about that group. Thank you for telling me about it. They are more than welcome to join us and participate in this gathering. Wouldn't it be great to get all the groups/clubs together at the same time? I think that would just be so much fun!!!

    Raea/Rita, did you know that there is the GAST MeetUp (German, Austrian and Swiss of Tacoma)? They meet monthly in your area. Might be worth while connecting with them... Love the Hess Bakery BTW! :-)

    Raea - I will help you with the group, even tho I am further away. I am a seasoned planner, so I should be able to lend a hand organizing. I think there is a HUGE community of Germans and German-speaking folks in South Sound or out of Seattle who would like an "active" German Club. The Seattle and Bellevue groups meet for drinks. It would be nice to do other things to promote our lineage within our group and families.... Tante Rita

    This is a great idea. Feel free to use this group to announce and organize your meetup. Hopefully we will get a lot of various meetup setup throughout the week or month where people can hang out and talk and "eat" German
