Berliner Boys Luncheon

Applebee’s Grant Park, Winnipeg, MB

Each Wednesday, Syd Reimer and Glen Kehler, two Berliner Kehlers cousins, have met for lunch, usually at Applebee’s.  Many Berliners have joined them from time to time.

To fight the mid-winter blues, come join us for lunch with the Berliners.  As you well know, this lunch will align itself to be spirited and vocal – if not downright gabby. ­They’ll never stop talking and when they have nothing more to say they will go on talking for the sheer pleasure of it. The air will turn into a whirlwind of words and laughter.  Let us know if you will be coming – email berliner@kehler.ca

When: Wednesday, January 18, 2017
What time: 11:45am to 1:30pm
Where: Applebee’s Grant Park, 1150 Grant Ave., Winnipeg,  R3M 2A6 (Map Link)
Co$t: Your lunch off the menu!

Homecoming a Success !

Thank you to each and every friend and relative who attended the Berliner Kehler Homecoming and book launch event at the Mennonite Heritage Village on Sunday, July 26, 2009. 

Kehler cousins, Syd Reimer, Al Reimer and Glen Kehler were overwhelmed with the response and grateful for the recognition of their three years of work to put the Berliner Kehler story into print.

There were over 175 relatives and friends at the afternoon event which included a reading by author Al Reimer and reminiscing by Glen Kehler. Syd Reimer chaired the program and the Ebenfeldshcha Bosch Brennt Dohl Band (Peter B. Kehler & Friends) provided musical entertainment.

Thanks also to the Kehler cousins who baked and served cookies and coffee to accompany the visiting after the program.

Sales of the book The Berliner Kehler Clan – A History in Portraits were brisk and the first printing was sold out. However, a second printing is underway and will be available shortly.
