Steve and Sandy Engelking point to their ancestor’s name on the Millheim Harmonie Verein historical marker. In 1847, a social hall was built on two acres purchased from F. Engelking Sr., and Heinrich Vornkahl. The hall served the Verein for many years until a new one was built in 1938.
And what is a BBQ doing at a historic singing society site without a band? And when the leader called for German singers Cousin Flora von Roeder rose to the occassion., while Cousins Steve and Charlotte enjoyed the show.
And then, Steve, Sandy and Charlotte “educated” the crowd on the meaning of “Schaukeln.” Steve, what happens in Millheim doesn’t necessarily STAY in Millheim!
