Swiss National Day Celebration
28 July 2019
The Swiss Club Edinburgh had a great event with about 30 people celebrating the Swiss National Day. Even the rain stopped before we started the barbecue grill. People enjoyed sparkling Mauler, wine and other drinks. We ate the traditional Bratwurst and Cervelat (actually bockwurst) from the barbecue grill together with tasty salads, brought along by members. The deserts, also made by members, were delightful too. After listening to federal councillor (Ueli Maurer) the national anthem was played on the bag pipe by honorary consul Peter Müller-McDougall. During the afternoon people enjoyed talking to and catching up with each other.

We gathered at the end of March in the same location as usual for our annual cheese fondue evening. Not only the wonderfully prepared cheese fondue but also the home made desserts helped to fill everyone's bellies.
Happy and with lots of cheese and bread, topped with some Swiss Schnaps (for digestion, obviously) and wine, we started our journey home.
