How do I start meeting a classmate

Decades after starting school, former classmates meet in Breitenbrunn

The 31 men and women born in 1956 and 1957 met on Saturday for an entertaining get-together in a local restaurant.

Johann Ehrl, Franz Kraus, Johann Mittermeier, Beate Pollinger, Heidi Vogl, Zilly Gottschalk and Mayor Johann Lanzhammer (FW) organized the alumni meeting. The former headmaster of the elementary school, rector a. D. J├╝rgen Grimm. Most of the classmates still live in the Breitenbrunn community or in the Neumarkt district. Rita Mayer had made the longest journey, namely from the Black Forest. After the obligatory group photo, everyone went to a Vespers in the parish church of the Assumption of God. It was designed by Deacon Kraus, musically framed by the evening praise team. This was followed by a visit to the cemetery, during which the two schoolmates who had already died were also remembered.

Afterwards, a tour of the House of Music and the new fire station on Unteren Markt was on the program. A meal together heralded a long evening with a cozy get-together. It was agreed that it should not be the last meeting - after all, there are plenty of old stories for long conversations.
