Notes, Instructions, Warnings, etc.
This year's events will benefit several charities which will be
determined closer to the event and listed on the DGS Blog.
Also, we request
that you to bring cans and other non-perishable food items to donate to
Danville-Riverside Food Bank.
Please bring items to donate to this
make sure you bring money to buy
stuff in the auction. Please bring auction items that you think that someone would actually want.
Don't use our auction as a way to take out your trash.
We will also continue to enforce the
"people who just don't get it"
rule: if you win money in an event and
buy something in the auction, we will force you to spend 15 minutes in the basement with Uncle Frumple!
Feel free to dress up in your best German or PA Dutch outfit! This is not a requirement, but
be prepared to be ridiculed if you don't look German.
The Danville German society recommends anyone who has enjoyed
and/or distilled beverages
to book a room at the Pine Barn Inn (800-627-2276 or 570-275-2071). Information about other hotels
(not within walking distance of downtown Danville) can be found here.
For directions to Danville, Jerseytown, or Germany, please email us or check out our directions page.

DISCLAIMER - If you have ever seen an elk, you know that
elk is quite difficult.
An adult male elk can weigh 800 lb. We do not "toss" elk without proper safety harnesses
and have never even touched an elk without these devices. We do not wish to harm the magnificent
elk or ourselves in any way. Please do not attempt to toss an elk at home.
