From left, Marylin Kliethermes and her brother, Glen Kliethermes, chat with Ute Geller, who recently retired after a 40-year teaching career in Lank, Germany. They were among several dozen people who attended a pool party on Sunday as part of a German Heritage Society event. The Loose Creek-based society visits its German ancestors every four years, and welcomes its German counterparts every four years. This year, about 25 families are hosting 45 German residents.
