There's always something happening in the context of our statewide efforts to welcome American families to their new home away from home:

  • German-American celebrations,
  • Recurring informal get-togethers,
  • Distribution of welcome bags to new American families, 
  • Local cooking classes for Americans,
  • City tours in English,
  • and much more.

Furthermore, our communities participating in this state program are making big efforts to support you settle in the local area by providing information in English about upcoming local events. This is meant to make it easier for you to get to know what's happening close to you and help you participate in the communal life. After all, your community strives after an open and active German-American relationship and wants to letz you know that you're more than welcome to prosper as member of the community.
