On April 13th the AIA Teen Activity Group, more commonly know as TAG, reunited for their second activity together. This time TAG decided to go paintballing in Brumath. Once transported to the meeting point, we picnicked in a field and then suited up for the games! Our reservation was at 2:00 pm and as it turned out there was also a group of German men whose reservation was at the same time. Hmmm…. So for the next two hours we played with and against this friendly group of Germans. After several games, 100s of paint balls and about an hour and a half, we came together to discuss our next TAG adventure.
The decision was made that our next activity would be more educational and so it was decided that would visit Struthof on Saturday May 17th. This is a tentative date and we are looking at a 1pm tour time…. we will also be looking for drivers who would also like to participate in a tour facilitated by the actual Director of the Struthof site, Mme Neau-Dufour!!!! So if there are any teens out there who are interested in TAG-ing along for this or other events please contact either Samuel Seguin of Henri Seguin via Facebook and we will gladly add you to the group.

Over six hundred people were in attendance for the Independence Day Garden Party, at the residence of Consul General Evan Reade and Mrs. Mary Rose Reade. AIA’s own Juliana Rambaldi sang both national anthems. The young Boy Scouts of America from Basel, Switzerland, presented the flags. Thank you to all AIA members who volunteered their help, and special thanks to Viv Beller, who organized the party’s “Catch me if you can” social game! The game’s 2 lucky winners will get to enjoy a dinner for 4 at the Maison des Tanneurs restaurant.

A little bit like stepping into Narnia, the Botanical Gardens in Strasbourg, (Jardin Botanique de L’Universite Louis Pasteur) is a kind of secret garden hidden in the middle of town. 15 or so of us gathered there for the last coffee morning of the season to tour the garden and explore its varied mysteries of exotic plants (some even from North America!), and a tucked away pond complete with Lilly pads and chirping frogs. Established in 1619 for the city’s Academie, the first site for the garden was created on the former convent cemetery grounds which is now the Ecole des Arts Decoratifs. Today on the current site, behind the Palais de L’Universite, the garden contains about 6,000 species of plants.
Our group enjoyed a lovely walk through the gardens with a tour guide during off-hours. Aside from a single school group we we had the gardens to ourselves! Following the tour we gathered at a nearby cafe for lunch. It was a great visit!

On May 9th, AIA members attended the revealing of a plaque in honor of WWII hero Audie Murphy in Holtzwihr. A Texas native, Murphy was awarded a Medal of Honor and several other decorations for his heroic actions in combat during his service, most notably at the Colmar Pocket near Holtzwihr, France, during WWII. We thank all of those who were in attendance at this touching memorial.
