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.

Annual Meeting 2019

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.

We congratulate as well our second trophy winner, Jeanette, which has been

honored taking the last place trophy from our friends far far away. We are sending greetings as well to our friends “The Trinklers”.

Thanks to Marco Deillon and Markus Bersinger and their helpers, for organizing this annual event.
