Civic Groups Banded Together To Plan Fete

The idea for a “Pioneer German Days” celebration in Jasper was conceived by the Jasper Chamber of Commerce and was brought into reality at a meeting called by the Chamber at which representatives of 28 civic, social, fraternal and ladies organizations of the community were present.

At a second meeting, the majority of groups reported favorable reaction from their memberships and the organization was set up with Arthur C. Nordhoff selected as general chairman and Albert T. Rumbach as honorary chairman.

To assist in directing the course of the celebration, a steering committee of six members was also elected and this group has been charged with giving the event direction.   It includes Harold Bettag, Mrs. Herb Pittman, Jr., Dick Krodel, Bob Loepker, Leonard Newman and Art Jarboe.
