From the President, May / June 2023

I attended the celebration of life that was held for ASHHS cofounder Glenn Sievers.
After attending a formal service, a celebration was held at the Durant, Iowa American Legion. We listened and talked about Glenn and his legacy as a local farmer and as cofounder of ASHHS.
His efforts to found ASHHS involved discussions back in the 1980s with like-minded people to include the German Ambassador in Chicago.
We sang some of his favorite German songs Wo Die Nordseewellen and the Plattduetsch song Nu Geit Dat Weder Los.
We enjoyed the time we spent with everyone reminiscing about all the stories we told and the many more that we learned.
Glenn, we will miss you and all your contributions.

Your President
Franz Neff
