Annual Meeting 2022

This Years meeting was held at the Waldhorn Restaurant in Pineville. Everybody was able to enjoy a great Dinner and the subsequent Raffle Prices. It seemed that some people had more luck than others this time.

Thank you very much for organizing and participating in this outstanding event. There are some additional pictures posted in the Gallery for you to see.

Hope everyone enjoyed it and we are looking forward to seeing you soon again.

August 1st Celebration 2022

“The Crowd”

Thank you all for coming!!

This Year’s First of August celebration started out at the new location at the Sardis Clubhouse – well known to all of our Raclette event fans. Thank you all for participating and contributing to this great event. Nevertheless it’s a big challenge for all the board members and volunteers to organize an event at this level – therefore – please let’s thank them for their great work and willingness to do so. Thank you very much!!

This year we have been able to welcome our new Consul General of Switzerland in the Southeast, Urs Brönnimann and his wife Katrin. We wish him and his family all the best for their new challenge in Atlanta.

Last but not least we would like to specifically thank our “Grillmaster” for his hard work.

Albert Brunner

There are additional events planned for this Year – so please come back and check our event calendar. As always – check out the Gallery for more pictures.

Gene Dietschi

For those who might not know.
Sad news, this past Sunday Eugene Dietschi passed away. We lost a dear friend and lifetime supporter of the Swiss Society of Charlotte.

Raclette Evening 2022

A great evening to remember!

After a long time not being able to see familiar faces – the traditional Raclette event opened the doors for all friends of the Swiss Society of Charlotte.

Under the guidance of Angelika Brunner (President) and many volunteers the event took place at the Sardis Club House. Thank you very much for organizing this event.

More pictures are available in our gallery.

August 1st Celebration

Finally – after a long time waiting to see some familiar faces the Swiss Society of Charlotte invited to the traditional August 1st Celebration to the RedFez facility on Lake Wylie.


All participants really enjoyed the traditional Cervelat/Bratwurst/Fleischkäse and the tombola. As usual also the kids had a lot of toys to play with.

Imagine the most seen color was actually ‘red’ with a well known ‘white’ positive plus (+) sign.

Big thanks to everyone organizing and helping to get the tradition rolling. Looking forward to seeing all of you soon again.

Bob Gerber

Bob Gerber passed peacefully in his sleep on March 4th, in Durham, North Carolina.

He was 88 years old and was a long time member of our society.

Our condolences go out to his wife Carol and his family.

Raclette evening held on February 15th

Last Saturday we met again at the Sardis Club for our annual Raclette. We had a good turn out with 67 attendees. Raclette started being served at 7 o’clock and there was more than plenty of cheese, salads and potatoes to be had. All could fill their belly with delicious desserts after the Raclette and a good time was had by all attendees. We are looking forward to next year’s Raclette.

Unfortunately some people didn’t get the emails sent out, rather, they went directly into the junk/spam folders due to embedded links. Everybody, please add the to your “White List” or “Approved Sender List” to guarantee you receive all Newsletters from the Swiss Society.

If you have any suggestions for the next Raclette, please write to Thank you!

Markus Bersinger on behalf of the Board

Last Night we have been able to enjoy the 33rd annual meeting of the Swiss Society of Charlotte. It was a festive event and we all enjoyed the great food prepared by the Chef Mario Thom.

We would like to thank all the volunteers, especially the members of the board, which are working very hard and diligently to make all those events a memorable and enjoyable event.

If you missed it, please take a look at the Event Calendar and mark every single day already now in your calendar. You wont be sorry!

Looking forward to seeing you at the next celebration of the Swiss Society of Charlotte.
