January AAUPW Events

AAUPW January Meeting Wednesday, January 18th at 6:30 PM 
Please join us for a very informative evening with US State Department Vice Consul - Devin Cahill. Ms. Cahill will offer us an inside look into what happens in the American Consulate in Munich in terms of the American Citizen Services Department. This will be a great opportunity for you to ask any questions that you should have about being an American Citizen living abroad. 

Ms. Devin Cahill is the American Citizen Services (ACS) Chief at the U.S. Consulate in Munich, Germany, where she is posted for two years. Her first tour was in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico where she worked in Non-Immigrant Visas, Immigrant Visas and American Citizen Services (ACS). Ms. Cahill has a BA from The George Washington University in Washington, D.C. and an MA from the Institute of Development Policy & Management at the University of Antwerp in Belgium. She is originally from Chicago, Illinois.

IMMA Update 
We were happy to have Carolyn, Grace, Jane, Tara and of course, the cookie baking goddess, Claudia for our holiday baking activity. Eight girls and Tina, one of the social workers, participated in the baking festivities. Thanks to everyone's efforts and amazing attention, we only burnt one tray (Tara) but had more than enough to put the girls and us into a sugar coma for days! 

And miracle of miracles - we were done with baking, packing and cleaning early so that as we were waiting for Claudia's ride, some of the girls walked over and were interested in seeing if her supplies were "zu Verschenken" or not. We'll be providing you with more updates for the Spring Fling Brunch in the upcoming months. 

A big THANK YOU is extended to all who generously donated to IMMA for the holidays. The girls were very thankful for the gifts and AAUPW’s support.

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
