Another Great Night at the Plattduetsche Park Restaurant for Our Oktoberfest Dinner Dance hosted by The Steuben Executive Board; namely Charlie Messemer, John Rohr, Joe Carpenter, John Louthan, Jimmy Hayhurst, Ted Cook, Bill Schillinger and the one and only Dave Schleyer. Of course Siegy Klammer was back in the fold for one night when we presented him with a plaque for his 43 years of service. His whole family was on hand to witness the stories and welcome the well wishers. We even got to see Siegy paste the floor with his fancy footwork. Well he did start the FDNY Soccer Club, so he must of had a few moves to get that going and it is
still going strong today.
It was a night of good friends, good food and good German Beer. A top shelf Cocktail Hour with delicious appetizers, followed by an extravagant German Style Buffet ending with Apple Steudel with Coffee and Tea. Entertainment provided by DJ Danny Fanto. You should remember Danny from our Boat Ride where he did a great job. German Dancers came in after everyone sat down with their dinner. They performed some traditional dances and then even got a few of the crowd to participate. Pete Klammer stole the show dressed in his embroidered Lederhosen. It looked as though he knew what he was doing. Nice Job Pete!
After the dancers exited, Maria Meier sang Edelweisse, acapella. She also performed both Anthems at the beginning of the night. She was with us last year and will be with us in the coming years. Thank You, Maria! A beautiful voice!
After Maria, DJ Danny Fanto rocked da'house for the next two hours. Everyone enjoyed themselves. And many of the crowd won the many prizes at the Chinese Auction.18 prizes in all all donated by local merchants. (see the list to follow)
Kevin Dunn, Retired Capt provided 2 framed pictures of a 343 Helmet which were bid on. We also had shot glass dishes at each table some with small bottles of Yaeger. Each dish contained a Genuine German Shot Glass, a piece of candy from Germany and some with that bottle of Yaergermeister, donated by a local Liquor Store. Many Thanks to all of those merchants that contributed to make our Raffle the Best Ever!
Many Thanks to Kathleen Valentine for donating her time as the night's photographer.The pictures are below.
Our Oktoberfest was a great success because of you but we need more people to attend this affair. We hope you will go out and tell others about how much fun you had at this affair. We hope we can increase our numbers in the coming years.
We thank you for any help.
NOW GO AND ENJOY THE SLIDE SHOW....
