 Meetings are held monthly and for the foreseeable future, we will be holding meetings virtually. 


February 24, 2021, at 6:00 p.m a Zoom Meeting featuring author,  Jim Merkel.

Jim Merkel is a St. Louis author and journalist who traces his German heritage in St. Louis back to 1858. In Beer, Brats, and Baseball: St. Louis Germans, he discussed how and why so many Germans came to St. Louis and their continuing influence today. His program will include observations on German-Americans in St. Louis as well as various readings from the book about important events and people in the city’s German community.
