CULLMAN, Ala. – Cullman’s German heritage society Friends of Frankweiler will do a little something special during its meeting this Sunday. The group is inviting all former members to come to the Cullman County Museum from 2-4 p.m. for a homecoming celebration!

This “homecoming” meeting will reflect back to the “twinning” of Cullman, Alabama and Frankweiler, Germany in May 1987.

The Friends invite:

“Come be a part of Cullman’s German heritage. We are encouraging early club members to attend. We hope to do a little sharing, pictures and possibly a video from the 1987 twinning. Have you been to Frankweiler . . . come tell us about your experience! Anyone who has visited Frankweiler is invited to come and share their experiences with the group. The public is invited to come and join in the festivities of this meeting.”

Whether you have had an active role in celebrating and preserving Cullman’s German heritage for years, or even if you’re just curious to learn more about why your town has things called marktplatz, festhalle, Christkindlmarkt or weihnachtspyramide, the Friends of Frankweiler would like to see you Sunday.
