PRESIDENT'S REPORT

Dear Die Bruecke Members

Our 2014-2015 year has been a challenging one for Die Brucke. While I have crossed many bridges throughout the year through my travels to German clubs and cultural events across Australia, there is still bridge-building to be done.

Following the passing of our long-term president, Joe Wendelberger, we have benefited greatly from dedicated Committee members who have stepped up into new roles. Christel Rohrbach became our Treasurer in 2013, but this was short-lived as she decided to return to Germany. Since this time, Die Bruecke has been operating in caretaker mode under the loyal and dedicated Joseph Hain and myself as the relative newcomer. We thank our membership across this period which has allowed us to consider our future and how we work with the clubs that we represent across Australia. I would like to also personally acknowledge Joseph Hain for the immense tenacity and support he has given to Die Bruecke across the last year. While his health has pushed him to the limit, he has always found time for Die Bruecke. To Jupp, I give a much beloved thank you.

Earlier this year, a Special General Meeting was called in relation to the continuation of Die Bruecke. I was astounded to see so many people at this meeting which was held at the Wollongong German Club. At this meeting, we agreed that Die Bruecke would continue at the very least until our AGM to be held in August 2015.

The support from German speaking clubs across Australia is definitely still there, we just need their commitment to ongoing membership of Die Bruecke. In 2014 I visited Goldcoast German Club for their annual ball and Wollongong German Club for their annual Oktoberfest. It was great to witness the community support for these clubs. The Harmonie German Club Oktoberfest in 2014 brought in dance groups, bands and German Club members from across Australia and it was great to see them all in our nation's capital.

I was very fortunate to be invited to Volkstanzfest in Adelaide in April 2015, which was supported by Die Bruecke. The dancing by all of the folk dancing groups was outstanding and it was good to see several international acts from Germany and Austria involved. It was great to see the level of interest in German folk dance from second and third generation German-Australians who are continuing their cultural heritage in Australia today. Congratulations to the Harmonie German Club on winning the bid to host the next Volkstanzfest in 2017.

To sum up, I urge all German speaking clubs and organisations to be strong and be supportive of Die Bruecke in Australia. We play a vital role in bridging the relationship between those people of German speaking origin and other people living in our wonderful country of Australia. With your continued support of Die Bruecke, I believe that the positive relationship between all German speaking clubs and organisations will continue to keep our culture alive in this place that we call home.

Best regards
Hans Stoehr


Rundbrief Nr. 35

Circular no. 35

Unsere Jahreshauptversammlung bescherte uns mit einem 8 köpfigen Vorstand, das erste mal in vielen Jahren das alle Aemter gefüllt sind. Ein guter Erfolg der viel verspricht. Ein neuer Anfang?

Mit der Erfahrung der einzelnen Vorstandsmitglieder kann man das erwarten und damit ist die Zeit gekommen dem dringenden Rat meiner Aerzte zu folgen. Habe Präsident Hans Stoehr am 20/08 Notiz meines Rücktritts gegeben.

Ich wünsche dem Vorstand besten Erfolg und harmonische Zusammenarbeit.

Jupp Hain, Ex-Sekretär, August 2015

This AGM presented us with an 8 member committee. All main positions taken, the first time in many years... a new beginning?

With the wealth of experience each new committee member has to offer, it is to be expected. After a collapse in the street and consequent hospitalisation I decided to take medical advice, tendering my resignation to President Hans Stoehr on the 20/08.

I wish the new committee much success and harmonious cooperation.

Jupp Hain, Ex-Secretary, August 2015

Breathe

"Our most essential and vital energy neglected"

Our creator made sure that we never forget to breathe, awake or asleep. The automatic system never fails until life on earth ends. Do you know that by practising proper breath control, also called pranayama, we can determine the metabolism and the rate of vibration of our body thus winning the battle against many diseases like Alzheimer's, dementia, cancer and all stress related maladies including obesity which is now an epidemic in many countries.
Do you also know that cosmic energy - Prana - is the most essential and vital energy available to mankind? The ancients knew this. The secret of understanding oneself and the meaning of life lies in the way we breathe. There is no substitute, none whatsoever. The benefits of Pranayama are limitless and unfathomable.
