Queen of Peace Residence held its 7th Annual GermanFest event on January 26 at the Hempstead Country Club. The sold out event featured a magnificent buffet of German specialty foods and desserts, German beer and wines and authentic German music with costumed dance performers. A good time was had by all.
Germanfest is a great traditional start for the New Year at Queen of Peace since it allows our Residents and Sisters in attendance to meet and speak with those who steadfastly support the mission of the Little Sisters of the Poor. It is a wonderful opportunity to thank old friends and make new friends. The Auxiliary Committee at Queen of Peace works tirelessly in preparation for the event by creating unique raffle baskets. In addition, the Committee members decorate the dining room, greet our guests during registration and sell raffle and auction tickets during the evening. Thank you for carrying on the splendid tradition of GermanFest at Queen of Peace.
The proceeds from this fun-filled event support the mission of the Little Sisters of the Poor at Queen of Peace Residence of caring for the elderly poor with dignity and respect. Thank you to all those who supported GermanFest.
