n. Auditorium with Stage
o. Library and Video Lending Services
p. Immigration Lawyers, Translators, German Business Consulting
q. Small Chapel/Church for those wishing to do Baptisms, Christening, Marriages or Funerals

If you think there are other groups to be considered, or other positions that should be includes in this list, please let me know. This project would be a great way for a number of Germans to contribute to the younger generation and to ensure that the story of “Germans in Canada” will be passed on. Great way to leave a legacy. All donors & sponsors will be acknowledged in our foyer with fireplace – where future Germans, Swiss and Austrians will walk by and see who to be grateful for. Please join us!
