Swiss Nationality Room Dedication at the Cathedral of Learning
We congratulate the Swiss on the dedication of their beautiful Nationality Room (321) at the Cathedral of Learning. The weekend festivities were celebrated with a banquet on Saturday, April 21 and a special dedication at the Heinz Chapel on Sunday, April 22. Since many of their members are also members of the Teutonia, we are proud of their contributions to the establishment of this exquisite room. Especially our member Ed Graf and Family, who has donated the Kachelofen and our singer Walter Schaller who serves as Treasurer of the Swiss Room Committee. Conrad Ostertag, Franz Stehr, Leo Sweeney, John Sliwa, Frank Yund and Frank Maier, members of the Helvetia Männerchor, are just a few of our members who have contributed to establishing the Swiss Room over the past 10 years. We are proud of their accomplishment and congratulate all the members of the Pittsburgh Swiss Community.
