German School, German Table or German Movie
Surrey German Language School
This year, the Surrey German School will be starting their “Double Day Schulfest” or Year End Celebration at their usual time of 9 am on a Saturday morning, May 30th, 2015. The Surrey German Language School provides internationally recognized German language education for students from kindergarten to graduation.
They don’t have a lot of information about this event up, but they will be offering a Mini Trade Show and are inviting the public to attend. Check out their website: http://www.surreygermanschool.com/ closer to the day.
German Table at the 18th Annual European Festival
This year, Germany is not the featured nation (as we were last year) and they only have one “cultural” table to look after. If you would like to volunteer for a 2-hour or 4-hour shift, please contact us in the comments below. Shifts run from 10:30 am (festival officially opens at 11 am) to 8 pm or on Sunday from 10:30 am to 6 pm.
Every year EuroFest BC Society organizes the European Festival to highlight the best of European innovation, culture and tradition – giving you a taste of that great “Old Continent” right in your own backyard!
This May 30th and 31st you can savour it all, from German Pork Hog and Hungarian Goulash to Balkan Ćevapi and Turkish Kofte! Admire authentic ethnic dress and get swept away by traditional dancing like the Portuguese Vira, the Spanish Flamenco and the Serbian Kolo. You will experience Europe, from east to west, as seen through the eyes of Europeans. This May, EuroFest BC Society brings unity through diversity to the Lower Mainland with colour, music and food!
German Movie at the German Canadian Care Home
This year, they will be showing the movie “Sein Letztes Rennen” at 2 pm at the German Canadian Care Home. The German-Canadian Care Home is for seniors who have care needs that cannot adequately be met at home. Our services include 24-hour professional nursing care, social work and pastoral care, rehabilitation and recreation services, meals, housekeeping and laundry.
The Movie is about A former Olympic champion who wants to compete in the Berlin Marathon one last time, starring Dieter Hallervorden.
A review on IMDB states that “Growing old and losing ones ability to do things is not easy. Especially accepting things as what they are or have become. But in this case it’s about not stopping and overcoming obstacles. It’s not like you don’t know where this one is going (again no pun intended). But the way the material is treated and the acting goes hand in hand with the script to make a very touching movie!”
