An English Advent Carol Service
Samstag, 26. November 2016
15:30 Uhr Klosterkirche St. Ottilien
Leitung:Stephen Norton, Orgel:Christoph Hauser
The Munich English Choir offers a lovely Carol Service at Kosterkirche St. Ottilien on 26 November. The Carol service follows the Anglican tradition first held in 1878 in Truro, England. It has been used continuously since then, perhaps the most famous version is that from Kings College Cambridge which has been broadcast on the radio since 1930. The structure of the service is as simple as the title: nine passages of Scripture are followed by nine carols. The Lessons will be read alternately in German and English. The service has a profound dignity and simplicity. Each lesson follows the same format: a reader goes to the podium and introduces the Scripture lesson, reads the passage, and concludes by saying, "Thanks be to God." Then the congregation and/or choir sing a carol reflecting on that passage of Scripture. For more information, please see their website at: www.munich-english-choir.de

October Events

October Program Meeting

A look at the Democratic Convention
Wednesday, October 19th at 6:30 PM

One of our members, Shari Temple, will be our October speaker. Shari was part of the delegation at the Democratic National Convention representing Democrats Abroad – Americans living outside of the USA. She will share her experiences of being in Philadelphia as the first women accepted the nomination as a presidential candidate for a major US political party. She will explain the process for selecting candidates as well as the role Democrats Abroad plays in the DNC.

Shari has been an active member of DA since 2004 serving in various roles within the organization. No matter what your political preferences are, this should be an interesting opportunity to learn more about how political parties operate from someone that was on the convention floor.

Sichere Wiesen 2016 Update

Seven AAUPW members and 3 volunteers from IMMA met up on Monday night to do our annual Sichere Wiesn flyer "action". We created 4 groups, fanned out around Munich inner city and passed out hundreds (no, probably thousands) of brochures to around 70 hotels, hostels and pensions. Thank you to everyone who participated!

FYI -- Sichere Wiesn is a safety point on the Oktoberfest grounds that helps women and girls who run into any kind of trouble during their visit (e.g., losing their friends, losing their purses/phones, drinking too much, health issues, sexual harassment). They help up to 30 people a night!

 Election Party!


Dear Members of MING (Munich International Networking Groups),
Dear Friends of the Bavarian-American Friendship,

TripleD Events and the Democrats Abroad Munich will hold an Election Party at the Wirthaus am Bavariaring on 8 November starting at 8 p.m. and will continue through the night until we know who the next American President will be. 

This election will be one of the most important that we have had over the last decades because we Americans will tell the rest of the word what kind of country we want to be.  Either we honor our international treaties and behave accordingly, or we go into isolation. This is just one example.  There are many more.

There will be plenty of food and drink, music, dancing and 2 large screens with continuous CNN live coverage. There will also be a small entrance fee to pay for the rent of the room and equipment and music.  About the cost I will inform you shortly.
Please let me know by return email if you plan to come if you have not already done so.

Best regards,
Dave Dowdy
