Upcoming German Christmas Events

If there is a German Club, Association or Organization in town, I most likely am on the Board, have been a member, have worked for them or support them through my blog, Westcoast German News and/or European News with advertising, public relations, communications and promotions.

Below are a number of events I would like to make you aware of and I would like to invite you to. Even if they don’t mention it, these organizations are mostly non-profit societies that greatly appreciate sponsors, donors and new members. If every German business in town could sponsor one or two German Clubs, Choirs, Churches or Care Homes, then we could keep them alive for our children and grandchildren for many years to come.

The German Canadian Business Association has two upcoming events they would like to invite the German Community in Vancouver to attend.

Will include a movie called “The Tunnel” followed by a discussion and soup. This is a German movie from the year 2001 that is based on a true story.

Am Samstag, dem 26.Oktober – 17:00 Uhr laden wir ein zu dem Film „Der Tunnel“. Danach gibt es wieder ein Gespräch und Suppe. „Der Tunnel“ ist ein deutscher Film aus dem Jahr 2001, der auf einer wahren Begebenheit basiert. Dieser dramatische und spannende Spielfilm erzählt die Geschichte mehrerer Menschen, die sich in ihrer Verzweiflung entscheiden, einen Tunnel von Ost- nach Westberlin zu graben, da die üblichen Fluchtwege nach dem Mauerbau versperrt sind.

Am Sonntag, dem 10. November – 9:30 Uhr laden wir ein zu einem Dankgottesdienst zur Erinnerung an den Fall der Berliner Mauer. Nach dem Gottesdienst werden Pastorin Breit und Pastor Ermisch erzählen, wie sie persönlich diesen historischen Moment erlebt haben.
