An Important Announcement from Christa Gendemann, President...

Due to the many concerns and government closures in regards to the Corona Virus (COVID-19), and at the recommendation of Interior Health and the Provincial Government, The GERMAN CANADIAN HARMONIE CLUB will be TEMPORARILY CLOSED effective immediately. We will re-open as soon as the Government allows.

In an effort to contain and limit the spread of this virus, more restrictions are being put on "Gathering Events", and events of more that 50 people are to be cancelled out of an abundance of caution. This is precautionary - There have been NO reported cases here, however, we must all do our part, take precautions, and take care of ourselves and each other.

Our Annual General Meeting Date is also now CANCELLED, and will be post-poned. We will telephone all of our Members once a new date is set.

Take care, stay healthy, and we hope to see you soon.
