We would like to sincerely thank everyone, past and present, who has helped the foundation with their generous donations! As you know, donations are needed to maintain and improve the lovely grounds and buildings at the German Central, and we sincerely appreciate the help! This past year we have made improvements to our main ballroom with air conditioning and a handicap restroom. The Rathskeller in the lower level of the main hall got a major face lift this spring. A new tile floor, dance floor replaced, new ceiling, new lighting, granite counter tops for the bar, new paint and cabinet behind the bar! A complete new look down there. Stop by and check it out!
We are currently improving our outdoor restrooms to get ready for the upcoming "Fests" that are on the schedule this year. Jim Halm and his hardworking volunteers are are up to their elbows in sawdust and dirt at the moment with the German Fest as their target date for completion. The project is under roof and getting ready for inside finishing work.
