Preview Germany at the Indiana State Fair

Interested in what'll be in the "Willkommen to Germany" exhibit at the Indiana State Fair 5-21 August? Plan to attend the program portion of tomorrow evening's meeting of the Indiana German Heritage Society. It's open to the public.

Justin Armstrong (project manager for the Germany exhibit at the fair) and Martin Baier (chair of the Indianapolis-Cologne Sister City Committee) will talk about the project at 7:30 p.m. 8 June in the Athenaeum, 401 East Michigan Street, Indianapolis.

This year, the Indiana State Fair Commission, the Indiana Economic Development Corporation and the local Indiana-German community are partnering to develop an 8,000 square foot exhibition featuring German cultural activities, performing arts, and business displays. One of the main goals of the Exhibition is to showcase the existing partnerships between Indiana and Germany, including the many sister relationships between cities in Indiana and Germany.

For questions about IGHS or tomorrow's program, contact Claudia Grossmann at the Max Kade Center, 317:274-2330.
