Fall Fun – Pumpkins, Apples, Corn Mazes and more

Updated Sept 25, 2016

Many of you already know I am a volunteer at the Geilenkirchen A&FRC. I’ve been heading up the Information Exchange that happens every month and free coffee or cappuccinos are provided. Each month is a different subject, where we spend 10-15 minutes talking about something about our local culture. September’s subject was Fall Fun and I provided the following information. The remaining 45 minutes is open to discussion between newcomers and experienced residents where you can ask questions about any subject. 

The previous paragraph was written in 2015. While the Information Exchange is not currently running, it could be resurrected by a volunteer who likes to research this area and fun things to do. The GK A&FRC has all of my old files too.
