The ceremony took place on April 21st and included dinner, discussion about our Club's and our District's history and activities and a presentation regarding the reconstruction of Warsaw after its complete destruction  during 2nd World war. Among the members of the Gentius Club was our previous President L. Klaus Boede, who is founding member, L. Iwona Nowak, PDG and L. Ewa Helka, second Vice DG 121, Poland. The social program was intensive and included visit to Krakow old city, Jewish quarters, Schindler’s Museum  and the famous Wieliczka Salt Mines and in Warsaw the old and new town, the technology and dollhouses museums etc. We believe that this twinning will be a good opportunity for our Club for exchange of experience during the next years and planning of common projects and in general mutual support among our members.

April 2016 - Spring Excursion at Kerameikos Archeological Site

Club Members, their families and friends joined a wonderful spring excursion to the Kerameikos Archeological Site. Dr Jutta Stroszeck, Chief Executive of the Kerameikos Archaeological Site of the DAI (German Archeological Institute) gave us a both interesting and amusing guided tour of ancient Athenian life.

After the tour we met for a small lunch together in a Taverna nearby to exchange on the magnificent impressions and thinking of our ancestors, who 2500 years ago might have enjoyed similar food and drinks at the very same place.

30 participants, among them 9 children, had a great and informative time
