Swiss National Day Event 2017

Personal invitation from the president

Dear Friend of Switzerland,
Let me extend a personal invitation to you and your family to join us for the 1st of August Celebration, held on July 30th at the EastMonte Civic Center. We are happy to go back to our “home base” after almost a year of exploring other venues in the Orlando area.
Our event will be filled with fellowship, reminiscing about old times and traditions from Switzerland, dancing and singing and of course eating a delicious meal. This year, our Chef Scott Baade has created a fantastic menu with a Ticino flair. Nobody will go home hungry!
I would like to extend a special Thank You to the Consulate General of Switzerland in Atlanta for their generous contribution of Swiss wines. All guests 21 and over will be able to enjoy a free glass of Gamay (red) or Chasselas (white) Swiss wine.
Please take a couple of minutes and reserve your spot today. Thanks to the creative hands of our webmaster Patrick, you can watch a “How to sign up online” video right from our homepage, You may also send your reservation and check payment via US mail to the post office box below.
If you would like to volunteer for a small job, or donate a Tombola raffle prize, please do not hesitate to contact me directly. I look forward to seeing you all on Sunday the 30th!
