Volunteering at the German Society: Thank you Laura! Welcome Maike!

The German Society of Montreal depends on the work of dedicated volunteers - not only for the planning and execution of events like the Society’s Christmas Bazaar, but also for the running of our day-to-day operations.

For the past seven months, Laura Kapitza managed the social media presence of the German Society of Montreal together with Corinne Vetter, who managed the event calendar and newsletter. Laura’s stay in Montreal has ended and she has moved back to Germany. The German Society thanks Laura sincerely for her dedication!
