HAUS Meeting in Amish Country


You are invited!
Universität Heidelberg is looking for former students, exchange students, professors, researchers and friends to build its American HAUS (Heidelberg Alumni U.S.). After forming the national Alumni organization, we are now starting Regional Chapters in different areas of the country. The Ohio Chapter of HAUS will hold its kick-off meeting on

Saturday evening, April 24, 2010, in Amish Country.
 5:00 pm at the  Chalet in the Valley, between Berlin and Millersberg (SR557)

We will eat supper around 6:00 pm and share our love of Heidelberg all evening. Kathleen Lance, the HAUS Leadership Committee Secretary, will join us to talk about the exciting 625th Birthday Celebration being planned for Universität Heidelberg. And most of all, we look forward to hearing YOUR ideas for the HAUS Ohio Regional Chapter! Bring your photos, Scheine and Studienbuecher.

Sunday we will visit Zoar, and eat dinner at 1:00 pm, at Zoar Tavern, 162 Main St.

Ohio has the largest population of Amish and Mennonites in the world. It’s an ideal place for us to meet, with a rich German tradition and lots of things to do before and after our get-together. It’s an easy drive from Cleveland, Columbus, Wheeling or Pittsburgh, and also can be reached in a day from Cincinnati, Toledo or Indianapolis. Some of you can drive down for the day and get back before bedtime. Or, you can stay the night. (For more details and travel information please see the attached sheet.)

Whether you spent a semester, a year or even graduated from Universität Heidelberg, you are invited. All friends of Heidelberg are also welcome.

Please let us know if you are planning to attend the meeting and dinner Saturday, April 24 at 5:00 pm, and/or Sunday dinner at 1:00 pm in Zoar, by emailing Mark at mark.peeples@alumni.uni-heidelberg.de or Ellie at ellie.tschugunov@alumni.uni-heidelberg.de  by April 19. Ellie will be coming from her home near Cleveland and Mark from Columbus. Please make your own reservations for your accommodations (see attached sheet for hotel recommendations). We will make the reservations for dinner. Everything will be “Dutch Treat.” We’re looking forward to seeing you in Amish Country! If you know of others who have a connection to Uni Heidelberg, please pass this invitation on to them, too.

Even if you can’t join us on the weekend of April 24/25, we would love to hear from you. Please e-mail us at info@HeidelbergUniversity.org. For more information on HAUS please go to www.haus.uni-hd.de
