Our third furnace was installed on April 21, 2021.  Three new furnaces in 18 months. this could not have happened without the fantastic support we received from our members!!

On September 16, 2020, Germantown Historical Society’s new Festhalle (German for Festival Hall) was dedicated at the Historical Society Grounds in historic Dheinsville, Germantown.  The hall will be used for Octoberfest and other activities. Dale Schuldt, 3rd Vice-Commander, of Post 1 and member of VFW Post 9202, saw a need for a large American flag in the hall. He designed and built the frame and installed the flag. Monetary assistance was provided by Germantown Post 1, Germantown VFW 9202, Germantown Post 321 Legion Auxiliary, Germantown VFW Auxiliary and the Germantown Veteran’s Memorial.  Great job by Dale!!
