The club is in the process of moving locations, so there's a lot happening right now. We'll keep all the updates posted here on this page.
Semi-Annual Membership Meeting
The semi-annual membership meeting is scheduled for Sunday, September 10th, 2023, from 2PM - 4PM at the GACC. The address is 40450 Hayes Road, Clinton Township, MI 48038 in the Amore Plaza. Financial review, property options, and upcoming events will be covered. Look here for updates at the meeting approaches. Thank you.
Verband der Donauschwaben USA (National Meeting)
The annual Landesverband meeting was held April 29th and 30th in Cincinnati, Ohio. The Verband is the association of the Donauschwaben clubs across the United States. Thank you to the Cincinnati Donauschwaben Society for hosting our annual national meeting this year.
Every April, Carpathia Club meets with our fellow clubs to discuss the state of our organizations, how we can improve, and what the future holds in store. The meeting also includes breakout sessions that cover many areas: Praesidenten, Frauen, Kultur, Kinder, Jugend, Fussball, Literatur und Kunst, and Website/Marketing. Each club came home with good ideas, renewed energy, and much hope for our future.
If you have any questions or would like more information, please contact our board at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you!
Generalversamlung (General Meeting)
The annual Generalversamlung (General Membership Meeting) was held on Sunday, February 19, 2023, from 2PM-4PM at St. Peter Evangelical Lutheran Church on Chicago Road in Warren. The meeting reviewed the club's finances in detail including a comparison of 2022 to 2021 line items. The Bier & Brat fest and the Oktoberfest did very well financially but property taxes was one of our biggest expenses in 2022. The board also reviewed the sale , reviewed the status of the move, and elected new board members which are listed on our Club Board and Officers page of this website. The membership renewed the board's ability to bid on new properties for sale or lease. Coffee and cake was served afterwards.
If you have any membership questions, please contact Brigitte, our membership secretary, at email@example.com. Thank you!
We're Moving Locations!
Carpathia Club has been part of Metro Detroit for over 100 years. That's not changing. But we are changing locations. The club is looking for properties in Macomb County: 2500+ square foot building with land (10 acres) or vacant land. Depending on availability, a building with land is preferred. Click here to see some of the current listings.
Identifying Meeting Rental Space
Until the new location is ready, Carpathia Club is looking into a few options for meeting spaces. Untergruppen have an immediate option with the Fraser Lion's Club for $130 for 2 hours or $160 for 4 hours. Club will pay, up to the dues collected in 2023.
The GACC will charge us $40/hour with a two-hour minimum. GACC leased space in a strip mall on Hayes and 17 Mile.
