More than 30 members gathered at the Swiss Farm to enjoy a wonderful evening celebrating the 1st of August in Swiss style, complete with a traditional bonfire! We enjoyed being among friends and meeting new Swiss in Auckland.
The Auckland Swiss Club put on a wonderful evening to celebrate our National Day at the Danish Club in Penrose. Everything from the food, entertainment, decorations and even the alphorn lessons were a hit.
A huge thank you to the food committee who cooked and prepared an absolutely delicious meal. Thank you to our wonderful president and committee for putting on such a memorable evening!
The evening was full of laughter, singing, dancing, and lots of Swiss pride!
The Annual Fondue Night was a delicious success! About 60 members gathered around caquelons to enjoy a delicious fondue prepared by our new chef group; a big thank you to Lukas and Ernst. After the fondue was a Switzerland & New Zealand trivia challenge. Some of us learned new facts about Switzerland and New Zealand. Do you know who the original “Swiss Miss” was? The trivia challenge was concluded with an exciting paper airplane competition; kids and adults had great fun in creating the planes! Thank you to Martin for being the quiz master. Congratulations to team Thurgau for winning the trivia challenge; they were rewarded with some fabulous Swiss chocolates. Dessert consisted of a delicious fruit salad, crème fraîche and chocolate mousse. Overall the night was a wonderful success full of great food and wonderful Swiss friends.
