My fellow German – Americans and Friends:
The United States of America is a great nation comprised of settlers from around the world and their descendants. Our nation is often called a melting pot. One of those immigrant groups that assimilated their traditions and culture are the countless Americans of German heritage.
German – Americans have been part of this great nation from the very beginning and down through the generations have worked together to help build the United States of America. For example, General Washington's chief of staff General von Steuben, a Revolutionary War hero who transformed the Revolutionary Army into a fighting force that lead to our nation’s freedom.
Thus to commemorate our heritage, on September 30th we young
and old, in our ethnic costumes and with our club crests, will
march down Huntingdon Pike to celebrate with pride and joy the
collective contributions of German - Americans along with their
traditions and culture in the German – American Steuben Day
