Fruehlingsfeier im German Canadian Care HomeFrühling zieht merkbar ein und lädt uns ein, an der Magie der Natur teilzunehmen in Gedanken, Gedichten, Geschichten, Bräuchen, Musik und Gesang.

“Am Samstag, dem 16. Mai, 14.00 Uhr, soll der Frühling auch bei uns einziehen und Freude bringen, nicht nur uns selbst, sondern auch den deutsch-sprachigen Bewohnern des Heimes.

Sie alle erinnern sich sicherlich an Gedichte und Lieder des Frühlings. Im Kreise lieber Menschen etwas selbst vorzulesen, oder Vorlesen zu lassen, ein Lied vorzuschlagen, das Ihnen besonders am Herzen liegt kann ein wunderbares Erlebnis sein.

Wir freuen uns Hubertus Schendel für diesen Nachmittag gewonnen zu haben. Er ist ein Könner und Kenner par excellence was das deutsche Volkslied angeht. Er wird uns mit Gitarre und Stimme begleiten und uns auch etwas über die Geschichte dieses und jenes Liedes sagen. Wir freuen uns auch, Wolfgang Araszewski wieder am Klavier zu hören. Er hat uns schon so viele Male beim Singen begleitet.”

Outreach Program

The Society offers cultural events for German speaking seniors and residents, which are conducted in the German language. The community gathers twice a month, on Saturday afternoons at the German-Canadian Care Home. Events feature coffee and cake followed by a film, a speaker or a seasonal sing-along. Since their inception these events have been very well attended.

Ongoing donations to help the Society support and finance these events are much appreciated. If you have any questions regarding this program or are interested in volunteering, please contact the Program Coordinator, Waltraud Custer at 604-713-6562, or e-mail outreachprogram@gcch.ca.

In addition, the Outreach program includes a book exchange and a poetry club. A weekly German sing-along is organized for Care Home residents, and members of the German community often also enjoy taking part.
