The James Valley Chapter of the Germans from Russia Heritage Society will meet at 7 p.m. Friday, May 10, at St. Paul’s United Methodist Church, 1000 5th Ave. NE. The DVD “Gutes Essen: Good Eating in German-Russian Country” will be shown. This is a documentary that shares recipes and memories from kitchens of 10 ND German-Russian women cooks who make strudels, sauerkraut, kartofel-kurbis strumbus, fleishkeuchla, borscht, rahmnoodla, pickled beets, stirrum, knoephla soup and kuchen.
Those attending are asked to bring their own favorite German-Russian recipe to share. Lunch will be served followed by a short business meeting. Anyone interested in learning more about Germans from Russia is encouraged to attend.
GRHS functions as a non-profit, non-denominational, non-political organization, incorporated under the laws of the state of North Dakota. Its aims are educational and social. Its purpose is to bring together people who are interested in discovering the common history unique to Germanic-Russian ethnics and to preserve the many elements of their rich heritage. The society collects, lists and catalogues published materials and personal documents that tell of the European migrations and exodus to the United States and Canada and of the pioneer life on the plains. For questions, call chapter President Betty Brosz at 252-4582.
