Community Information


In honor of Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month, the Family Advocacy Program (FAP) launched a “Teal Ribbon Campaign” to help raise awareness. The Garmisch community found itself covered in teal during the month of April, from signs and posters plastered on community kiosks to tiny teal ribbons stuck to staff members’ lapels and name tags. Teal ribbons represent the fight against sexual assault and were posted all over the community with the local sexual assault crisis hotline number. But that’s not all – in an effort to get the attention of community members and visitors FAP organized its first community “flashmob.” During the 1st week of April, several community members came together in two locations to dance to the inspirational song, Aretha Franklin’s R-E-S-P-E-C-T. Attracting the attention and participation of community members with a positive message against sexual violence. “The flashmob was a real community effort,” says Aimee EdwardsHunter, FAP Manager. “Garmisch is a small community, and there were several people from all different organizations, from Active Duty to Family members to Civilian employees who got involved at all different levels. Each person brought their own strengths to the efforts – this level of involvement in such a small community sends a really strong message about the commitment to end sexual violence.” Throughout the month of April, ACS also staged Silent Victim Silhouettes throughout the community. These five “silent witnesses” traveled from week to week to various locations around the community. The purpose of these stories is to share the powerful message that, while sexual assault continues to be a pervasive problem within all military communities, there is hope for change. FAP is attacking the problem with a two pronged-approach of prevention and support. Reducing the risk of sexual assault by helping community members identify and intervene in potentially escalating sexually aggressive behaviors to include sexual harassment, and by publicizing community resources for victims such as 24-hour crisis hotline availability, victim advocacy, crisis intervention, hospital accompaniment, and additional supports. “Garmisch is mostly known for its beautiful mountains, skiing, and other outdoor recreational facilities,” says Edwards-Hunter. “We get a lot of visitors to the area from other installations and communities on R & R, family retreats, or even just for a long weekend. But the same risks exist even on vacation – in fact, sometimes people may be more at risk while on leave because they are not as familiar with their surroundings or local resources, and may not have their usual support systems surrounding them. In Garmisch, we want ALL of our guests, visitors, and residents to be able to enjoy their time here in safety.” It is clear that the community pulled together to share a powerful message!

Leisure Trips and Tours Partenkirchen Walking Tour Wednesday, May 30, 1 p.m. Artillery Kaserne Gate Cost: Tour $7; Bus €1.50 We do an introductory walk through historic Partenkirchen, the older of the two twin towns and the one that many Americans rarely venture to! It will include some history as well as a nod to the places where one can get the best hot chocolate and the best pizza. We will also point out the Irish Pub and a few of the more popular restaurants. Historic highlights include the “Plague Chapel” put up during the Thirty Years’ War, some great frescoes, the State School for Woodworking, the Partenkirchen Kurpark, and some wonderful stories about Ludwig the Bavarian, Henry the Lion, and St. Mark. Come and check it out. After lunch on May 30, we will meet at the city bus just outside the Artillery Kaserne Gate and take the bus that arrives there at 1:10 p.m. We ride the bus to the first stop past the train station; continue walking in the same direction until you get to the traffic light (Rathausplatz, corner of Hauptstrasse and Ludwigstrasse).

Biking to the Music Tour Sunday, June 17, 7:30 p.m. The Staatskapelle Weimar Symphony Orchestra visits Garmisch-Partenkirchen as part of the “Richard Strauss Music Festival”. This year’s theme is “Strauss and Nature” and “naturally” the piece of music that first comes to mind is his Alpine Symphony which the orchestra will perform at 7:30 p.m. in the Olympic Ice Stadium. Richard Strauss wrote the music for this work in his chosen home of Garmisch while looking out the window at the mountains, the weather, and the alpine scenery that are all around us here. We are going to prepare ourselves for this overwhelming symphonic work by bicycling to some of the very areas that most inspired Strauss. To be absolutely authentic to the grandeur of the music, the bike ride must also be challenging! We are going to bike about 70 kilometers–completely around the Zugspitze into Austria and back to Garmisch through Mittenwald. Exhausting, exhilarating, extraordinary in every sense of the word, we will experience the very kinds of ecstasy that the symphony sings of. Bike all day and hear the music in the evening! This is a once-in-alifetime experience!

Ballets, Concerts, and Operas in Munich Cost: $12 for transportation only One of the best things about living in the countryside around Garmisch-Partenkirchen is that our beautiful village is located so close to Munich, the Bavarian capital city with all the cultural opportunities that anyone could ask for. If you are interested in acquiring season tickets for any of these events, please contact us at DSN 440-3370 or Civ. 08821-750-3370.

We get up early the next morning for breakfast (6:30 a.m.) and the bus ride to Venice (6:50 a.m.) for an all day tour. Naturally, there are wonderful things to see - great art and architecture, pigeons in St. Mark’s Square, gondolas etc. and good places to eat! Return to Vicenza and then, on Sunday, it is on to Verona for a tour of the Romeo and Juliet city with the great Roman Arena and a wonderful restaurant. We take about three hours to gorge ourselves before arriving in Garmisch about 9 p.m. Plan to bring about 120-140 € to cover museum entrances, food, public transportation, and some souvenirs. Do not forget your passport!

Prague: Weekend with Bohemian Beers Friday, May 25–Monday, May 28, Departs at 4:15 p.m. Cost: $370, $45 per night for a single room Let’s go to the place everyone wants to see in the “new Europe.” Prague is often on the top of everyone’s list of places to visit in the old world. We leave at 4:15 p.m. on Friday and should arrive at our hotel shortly after 10 p.m. There will be a Friday night orientation tour of Prague, including how to get back to the hotel if your experience of the city is going to include any of the very late night spots! Saturday starts with a daytime tour that includes a few more touristic sights. We will arrange tickets for those who want to see an opera in the evening. Prague has it all; museums, shopping, churches, art, and of course, architecture. Paul will conduct a guided tour of the Franz Kafka museum as well. There will be a fair amount of free time to explore on your own. Three full nights in Prague and two days before we load up for the ride back to Bavaria. On the way home we will stop in Plzen to sample some “Plzener Urquel” beer at a terrific restaurant. Estimated arrival time back in Garmisch is about 8 p.m. Do not forget that you need a passport!

Munich in the Third Reich Tour Friday, June 1–Video at 7 p.m.; Sunday, June 3–8 a.m. trip to Munich Cost: $35 One of the most popular tours is Munich in the Third Reich - a walking tour that was developed quite a few years ago to coincide with an exhibition that the Munich Stadtmuseum was presenting. We start with a video presentation and a geographical and historical orientation in the PLTCE Auditorium (Bldg. 253) on Friday at 7 p.m. On Sunday, we meet at the Garmisch Train Station just before 8 a.m. and take the 8:04 a.m. train to Munich. There we recreate the Bier Hall Putsch exactly as it happened in 1923. After lunch, we visit the site of the Munich Accords (where Czechoslovakia ceased to be an independent unified country) and see some other places associated with the Nazi movement. This is an extremely interesting tour, somewhat like touring an urban battlefield. We cannot pretend that there is not a lot of walking, or that this is a short day. Most participants are somewhat exhausted after we stormtroop our way from one end of Munich to another. However, we have not had anybody say to shorten it. Hours of Operation Monday–Friday 12 p.m.—6 p.m. Closed Saturday, Sunday, and U.S. Holidays

Army Community Services ACS Congratulates the Community Adult and Youth Volunteer of the Quarter!!! January, February, March 2012

Community Adult Volunteer of the Quarter, Melody Teets!!! Ms. Teets consistently contributes to ongoing, year-round supportive services provided by ACS Family Advocacy Program. However, in preparation for Sexual Assault Awareness Month, she went above and beyond her normal volunteer role to assist in the planning of an exciting community event, its first awareness-raising “flash mob.” Melody committed several additional hours of her time, downloading music and choreographing dance moves for the group to perform. Ms. Teets also facilitated bi-weekly rehearsals to teach the participants the routine and practice their moves. The outcome was wonderful – several community members came together in two locations to dance to an inspirational song, Aretha Franklin’s R-E-S-P-E-C-T, getting the attention and contributing to increasing community awareness of the prevalence of sexual assault, prevention and intervention options, and community resources. Without this volunteer using her time, talents, and strengths, this component of the event would not have been possible, and likely would not have reached so many. Thank you, Melody!

Community Youth Volunteer of the Quarter, Kassidee Kane!!! Ms. Kane has consistently contributed at least 4 hours a week towards volunteering; and she’s done this since she moved back to the community, over a year ago! As a full time student who also works and continues with an active social life, this is no small feat! Every Sunday, Ms. Kane leads the Catholic Mass in songs of worship, completely a cappella. In addition to her weekly commitment, Ms. Kane volunteers her time at other community events, performing whenever requested. Her musical talent and passion for sharing that gift has no boundaries! She is also an active volunteer with Club Beyond. In March, Ms. Kane was a youth leader for the Middle School Adventure Retreat. She assisted wherever needed, always cheerful and happy to assist! Without her Catholic Mass would not go as smoothly as it does and Club Beyond would lack a responsible and caring youth leader and mentor. Thank you, Kassidee!

Army Emergency Relief (AER) Campaign “70 years - A Strong Tradition of Soldiers helping Soldiers” The AER Campaign is underway until 15 May. Making a contribution to AER is a guaranteed way to help Army Soldiers and their Families. AER is a private, nonprofit organization incorporated in 1942 by the Secretary of War and the Army Chief of Staff. AER was started with seed money from the American Red Cross with the mission to provide emergency financial assistance to Soldiers and their Families. Early donations to AER established a solid financial base from which to support the Army Family. Irving Berlin donated all profits for the stage and film version of his 1942 hit movie “This is the Army”. He also donated the music rights from the movie to provide future income and he gave AER the original film. Heavyweight Champion Boxer Joe Lewis also donated his winning purse from several of his fights. AER obtains all its funds through donations. Contributions help assure continued availability of AER funds to meet the increasing assistance to Soldiers. More than 88 cents of each dollar donated goes directly to help Soldiers and their Families. Since its founding, AER has provided more than $1.3 billion to more than 3.3 million Soldiers, Families and Retirees. The assistance to Soldiers and Family members includes emergencies, college scholarships, grants to Wounded Warriors and survivor assistance. AER assistance is based upon a valid need and is flexible in responding to all types of financial situations. AER officers work toward "finding a way to say yes." Since 2005 AER has added new programs and categories of assistance to meet the challenges facing our Soldiers. The most recent categories include Family member dental care, basic furniture needs, rental and replacement of vehicles, and cranial helmets. By virtue of a reciprocal agreement with all DoD aid societies, Soldiers and families not near an Army installation can obtain AER assistance from the Air Force Aid Society, Navy Marine Corps Relief Society, and Coast Guard Mutual. Assistance or from the American Red Cross. Conversely, any Service Member from any service branch can obtain assistance from AER. Full details on AER’s assistance programs may be obtained by contacting Patricia Pearce, USAG Garmisch AER Officer, DSN 440-3526 or CIV 08821-750-3526 or email to Campaign Unit Key Personnel are: George C.
