Bericht des Präsidenten
Nach unserer Ferienreise nach Amerika und Europa um
unsere Kinder und Familien zu besuchen, freuten wir uns
auf schönes Sommerwetter, jedoch in Seattle und Ireland
war es wie bei uns im Winter mit ausgiebigen
Regenfällen. Die Schweiz war etwas besser, jedoch der Sommer war verspätet.
Man hofft ja immer, nächstesmal wird es besser werden.

Die zwei Sonntagkonzerte mit dem Mandolin Orchester und dem Heimat Chor
waren gut besucht und ein voller Erfolg. An der Klubgründungstagfeier werden
wir wieder ein Abendessen servieren, für die Mitglieder mit gültiger
Mitgliederkarte $ 10.00 und Gäste $ 35.00. Machen sie davon regen Gebrauch.
Karten sind nur im Vorverkauf im Büro und bei Mae erhaltlich.

Die Arbeiten der neuen Klimaanlage für die Edelweisshalle werden demnächst
vergeben, so dass bis anfangs September die alte Anlage ersetzt ist. Das Büro
hat nun eine neue Telephonanlage erhalten, da die bestehende nicht mehr
repariert werden konnte.

Bitte unterstützen Sie uns und besuchen Sie den Klub wenn immer möglich,
denn nur mit ihrer Hilfe and aktiver Teilnahme können wir den Klub erhalten.
Unser Klub bietet Ihnen die Möglichkeit, kleinere und grössere Familien und
Freundschaftsfeiern mit Unterhaltung zu verbinden oder in den Privaträumen
des Klubs zu feiern. Vergessen Sie nicht, jedes Mitglied kann 5 Gäste
mitbringen.

Bundeslied.
      Wir wollen sein ein einzig Volk von Brüdern,
      in keiner Not uns trennen und Gefahr
      Wir wollen frei sein, wie die Väter waren,
      eher Tod, als in der Knechtschaft leben.
      Wir wollen trauen auf den höchsten Gott
      Und uns nicht fürchten vor der Macht der Menschen.

                                Our visit to our children and
                                family members in America
and Switzerland has come to an end. Unfortunately the
weather was not the best and the expected summer time
was more like winter in Australia. We had plenty time to re-
lax and take it easy. Now life has returned to normal after all
the travelling and we are catching up with the work in the
Club.

Our Sunday afternoon concerts have been very successful and especially our
older members supported them. Some of them will not leave their houses dur-
ing the evening, so it gives them another opportunity to attend some of our club
functions. The WAMO mandolin concert and the Heimat Choir „Wine, Women &
Song“ concert afternoon was well attended and enjoyed by all present.

On Saturday, 22nd September we will be celebrating our Club ‘s Anniversary
with a 3 course dinner. Please note the starting time is 7pm. Members once
again pay only $10.00 with presentation of a valid 2012-13 membership card.
Guests $35.00. The full cost of the evening will be close to $40.00 for the club.
Tickets are available only in advance at the office or with Mae. Booking closes
on Monday 17th September. Come and make use of this special offer!

MODEL RAILWAY GROUP
  Meeting Fridays -1900/700pm

  A request has been made to write the history of the Rhein-Donau
                Model Railway Group.

                  Unfortunately there are few written items to be found,
                  mainly because the person responsible for the coming
                  into being (about 2000) of this club, Heinz Runge,
                  wanted everything to be dealt with in an informal
                  manner. Perhaps the best way to start the story is by
                  selecting modified excerpts from the “Vale Heinz Runge”
                  written by our member Niels Kroyer:

                  Heinz Runge – 69, passed peacefully away in his sleep
                  on the 14th May, 2005.
                  Heinz first tried to establish a European group within
                  AMRA WA but felt somewhat restricted (by the
                  constraints that AMRA placed - RdG) to what he
                  envisioned a European railway should be. With his
                  tireless energy he found a large unutilised room at the
                  Rhein-Donau Club. Heinz set out to establish the Rhein
                  -Donau Model Railway Group (R-DMRG) which today
                  comprises of some 25 members.

 Heinz was the driving force in designing the Group’s layout in detail for
members to run Märklin (AC – third rail) and DC trains.

                                               (to be continued)
