As you can probably tell from the photos, our Maifest was a great success. Many hours of thoughtful planning have gone into making this celebration a fun event for young and old. I want to thank all out volunteers. Not just the ones who helped with the event, but also those, who have helped with fundraising events in the past, which made it possible to fund this Maifest. I also want to recognize and thank the Enzian Schuhplattler Group, who went above and beyond to keep us entertained and create a fun atmosphere, as well as Angelika from the German Corner Restaurant in Lacey, who cooked our delicious Schnitzel dinners. Already people are asking when we'll do this again, and I guess the answer depends on how many of our members will step up and join the Maifest Committee. It takes a lot of people to put on an event of this magnitude and I hope we will be able to have a Maifest again in 2011.
