GRAND CHAPITRE d’ALLEMAGNE
from 3rd to 6th October 2019
The German autumn Grand Chapitre was held in Berlin. It was grand in the literal sense.
More than 350 members and guests were present to participate in this outstanding event. The induction ceremony took place in the newly erected Humboldt Forum, where formerly stood the town palace of the German Emperor Wilhelm II. It is not open to the public, yet. The Gala Dîner was served in a unique location amidst oldtimer cars. As for tours Berlin has so many extraordinary angels and sites to offer that the choice was difficult.
Bailli Franz Hauk and his dedicated local Board had done their best to answer to all queries, needs and wishes. Our Inducting officer was the new Grand Argentier, Benoît Fragnière, also Chancelier of Switzerland. His task was not easy because he had to induct or promote more than 130 new members.
The world had come to Berlin from 11 different countries and the Berlin Bailliage can be proud and has certainly left wonderful memories with the Chaîne members.
VIVE LA CHAINE !
Barbara Tritschler, Pair de la Chaîne
