We are thankful for the volunteers Ron Miyashiro the master pianist with Mimi Sugane and Patrick O'Connor and Hermann Allerstorfer with ukulele.
A double surprise went beyond expectation.
Hans Strasser was pronounced "Austrian of the Year 2013"
and our past Bürgermeister Hermann Allerstorfer was honored by the President of the Hawai'i State Senate Donna Mercado-Kim with a proclamation for his long time service.
A thank you goes to Nancy and Gerhart Walch not only for bringing the largest number of guests but especially for inviting the President of the Senate!
If that was not enough the present bürgermeister's twin granddaughters Kylie and Zoe performed flawless including the recital of the song " 43 Presidents " without missing a single one of them.
Our thanks also go to the chief photographer Thomas Tietz and contributing photographer Bodo Herrmann.
H. Pepi Pesentheiner, Bürgermeister
