Between 35 and 40  people joined us at our 'Weihnachtsfeier' on December 15, 2017 in the music auditorium at Auckland University’s Epsom Campus. Volker Strübing, Goethe-Institut writer in residence in Christchurch, was our special guest. He read some of his work and spoke of his experience as a traveller in New Zealand. His partner Renée van Bavel performed on the piano. It was a very pleasant evening with Stollen, Plätzchen and other seasonal goodies as well as juice, wine and tea. Thanks to everyone for their generous contributions. It was an enjoyable evening and a pleasant way to wrap up the year.
