1st of August Celebrations – see Events page
Please find attached the invitation for the Swiss Nationalday 2020 Celebration. Time and years fly the older I get.
Starting on 1st August 2001 this is the 20th times we celebrate together! Since then you were able to meet other compatriots in our area,
also when you attended the Easter Bunny, the Christmas/Santa get togethers or since last year the monthly lunches on the 15th of each month.
Sad it is such a long way for those from Bauple or Bundaberg but this time Marlies and Willy decided to attend for the first time to meet others – welcome !
Maybe others could organize some care pooling?
Some might think this is crazy – its Corona time! – but as we have so far no cases in our area (5 in all QLD) we thought we go for it –
Unless some new cases happen this week. I think we all do the right thing so there should be no risk on the large veranda or outside in the garden.
Thank you to Walti and Susi who offered their property and cook for us the Goulash, Red Cabbage and Mash Potatoes.
Thanks for letting me know which dessert you like to bring so we have not too many or doubled.
Also let us know if you like to stay for the Servelat-BBQ fire in the evening and/or staying over night.
Looking forward to seeing you – otherwise please keep in touch with each other
in small groups organized by you – individual as a morning or afternoon coffee at home or in town or fish and chips at beach etc.
NOBODY NEEDS TO BE LONELY – but others need to know if you like to meet someone.
Wishing you all the best wherever you will celebrate this year Swiss Nationalday.
Stay healthy and home except for important duties and exceptions.
