Would You Like to Help Out?
Our Deutsches Haus has remained our cultural haven since 1897 where we
meet to sing, dance and enjoy delicious German food. Over these 123 years, there
have been dedicated members who have kept our facilities functioning properly.
John King has kept our furnace functioning, our coolers cooling, our faucets
flowing and now that he is passing on his maintenance position we are looking
for someone to take his place!
John is willing to teach, guide and assist the new person on all the vital
functions and operations of the Deutsches Haus, to insure a smooth transition
into their new role.
If you are interested, please contact Edgar Bueschke- Club VP, Karin King- Club
President or John King himself to schedule an appointment and discuss the
responsibilities in further detail.
