HAUS 2rd Annual National Meeting!
Heidelberg Alumni from across the US will come together for the 2nd annual national alumni meeting on the weekend of September 25 - 27, 2009 in San Francisco, California. Friends of Heidelberg University are cordially welcome. We will also invite alumni from Mexico and Canada to join the festivities. The weekend will be kicked off with a casual dinner on Friday night.
Saturday morning is reserved for the "business" part, the annual meeting of HAUS. We are looking for input from all HAUS members, especially regarding the future direction of the alumni organization, new regional chapters, and additional events. All ideas are welcome so come prepared to brainstorm. Since the boat tour around Manhattan was such a success at the inaugural meeting in 2008, we are planning to offer a sailing trip in San Francisco Bay on Saturday afternoon.
The main event of the weekend will be dinner on Saturday evening, providing alumni and friends plenty of opportunities for networking and sharing memories. The speaker of the evening will be a scientist form Heidelberg University, who will highlight recent research at the university. Sunday morning starting at 8:30 AM we are invited to an Election Party at the Goethe Institut to follow the German national election which takes place that day. The first results are expected for 9 AM Pacific Time/6 PM German Time.
Please keep in mind: HAUS membership will ensure a discounted rate for the weekend's events.

Summer Outing to the North Fork of Long Island
HAUS members Clark McCombe and Hannah Ortiz are graciously inviting their fellow Heidelberg Alumni to a fun summer outing to the North Fork of Long Island. We will start the day with a visit to Clark's Briermere Farm. The place is famous for their incredibly delicious pies. After a short hayride exploring the farm (dress accordingly) and a pie tasting, Hannah invites us to lunch on the porch of her Victorian House nearby. Afterwards we would follow the North Fork out East, stop at a winery or two, stroll through Greenport and return via Shelter Island and two short ferry rides back to New York and surrounding areas.
We hope to see you on August 29! Herzliche Grüße, Melanie Rolli & Irmintraud Jost

As many of you know, Heidelberg University founded an Alumni Chapter in the U.S. (HAUS) in October of 2008.

We will meet at Berghoff, 17 West Adams Street, Chicago, IL 60606.
Kind regards, Irmintraud Jost
