No more e-mail newsletters

As we decided during our last membership meeting, the GAMC will no longer publish and mail a regular newsletter as in the past years. Our communication platform of the future will be the Internet.

The "Löwenbar" had been a hot and dark place with heavy fights among GIs in the fifties, before in 1955 the Gustavstraße was declared "Off Limits" for all Americans. Now more than 50 people showed up and contributed as
contemporary witnesses to the discussion about the presence of Americans in Fuerth between 1945 and 1995.

As GAMC members we visited the season opening of the Fuerth Pirates at their first game in the 2. Bundesliga.

18 January 2016 - Membership Meeting

We welcomed 28 Members of our club in the restaurant "Zur DJK" in Fürth. After a delicious buffet our president Marco explained the reduced activities of the GAMC due to less participation of our members. We decided to open the Board meetings to all members ("Open Board Meetings") to increase the number of social contacts and to be open for new ideas. In the future our members will be informed about events only by short e-mails referring to more information on our homepage and a letter note for those few without Internet. The dues will be 20 Euro per person and year from 2016 on. Norbert Friemelt as treasurer submitted his report on the figures of 2015. Dietmar Lehmann confirmed the correctness of the balance. The report was accepted by the audience unanimously together with authorization for both to continue these tasks for 2016.Our Board members recommended for re-election, Eva Flasche, Heinz Stahlschmidt and Bernd Jesussek, were accepted unanimously. 

26 October 2015

We were guests of the DAI (German-American Institute, Nurnberg) on a bus tour to Vilseck and Grafenwöhr. Franz Zeilmann from the Public Affairs Office presented us the 2nd ACR with the Reed Museum and a M1126 Stryker Infantry Carrier Vehicle. At the airfield we could inspect a UH-60 Blackhawk helicopter. Thank you to our organizer Friedrich Geyer, our guide Franz and the many soldiers who answered our many questions.

Vision of the GAMC

The chaining between the United States of America and Germany has been grown in centuries. It withstood the conflict of the Second World War and has increased during the Cold War and the partnership in the NATO alliance. Globalization and shifting alliances, changing ruling parties and their leaders may threaten the friendship between both nations. So it has to be cultivated and strengthened by perpetual efforts.
The German-American Men’s Club of Middle Franconia wants to bring people of all nations together to promote and foster greater appreciation of both nations traditions, customs, history and culture. It wants to promote good friends and neighbours and create improved mutual understanding and confidence.  

Mission

The German-American Men’s Club of Middle Franconia was founded in 1970 by Germans, Americans and members of the area’s Military Communities and is one oft he most prestigious clubs in Franconia.
The Club has matured over the years, but the overall purposes have remained the same, the desire to bring together Germans, Americans, and English speaking people of other nations for educational, recreational, and social activities sponsored by the Club.
Over the years, the Club has visited museums, churches, palaces and castles, and the wine growing areas of this wonderful region of Northern Bavaria. The goal of the German-American Men’s Club is to continue in this tradition, increasing its membership, and continuing to add contributions to International understanding. English speaking men and women of all nations are invited to join. Club Members may sponsor applicants for membership or applicants may contact the club secretary directly if they are interested in joining.
