Ein Dreifach Hoch!

Despite inclement weather, April 20th was a day of celebration. The new building is moving forward by leaps and bounds and with the completion of the roof it was time for the traditional topping out ceremony (Richtfest).

The beribboned tree on the rooftop, the tireless workers responsible for the completion of the building shell, the planners, representatives from the world of business and local government, together with other invited guests were all subjected to wind and rain, but nothing dampened the spirits of the foreman who gave the traditional rhyming address (Richtspruch). Cries of “Hoch, Hoch, Hoch” accompanied his lubricated message of thanks and goodwill and all were excited to see the new spaces in the building and enjoyed the traditional refreshments of sausages and potato salad in the new theater.
