Below are various exhibit lectures sponsored by the different organizations.
The Exhibit hasgrown considerably and continues to grow, as do the historical stories. My helpers the "dirndl girls" are there to see that the intellectual property issues are respected.
Featured first is an Exhibit/Lecture held in Manhattan earlier, at St. Ignatius Loyola, at 84th Street and Park Avenue. It is featured first, merely to demonstrate the scope and size of the amount of historical material collected and displayed.
3 more events were scheduled in 2020 and 2021 but were canceled due to the Pandemic.
The most recent exhibit lecture was for the Queens Gazette Newspaper, November 11, 2019. Below are photos taken in the small St. Michael's Chapel in East Elmhurst. in New York. Unfortunately, the space was very small so not all of the 36 panels and artifacts were on display. About 150 people attended with standing, room only. Below are some photos with the subwequent 2 page article in the newspaper.
Featured next is the Exhibit/Lecture sponsored by the FRIENDS of the Upper East Side Historic Districts, held on March 9, 2019 at St. Jean's Baptiste Church.
Previous photos of presentations include: German American Steuben Parade at the Kolpinghaus, NYC; St. Ignatius Loyola historical event, NYC; The Liederkranz Club event, NYC; Senior Home, and the Bavarian Festival, both at Plattedeutsch Park, L.I. NY; Scheutzen Park Senior Home, N.J.
