Texas German Society Holds State Convention in La Grange

No Comments Local News

By News Staff

This past Saturday the Texas German Society (TGS) held its statewide, annual convention at the KC Hall in La Grange. By unanimous vote the 333 members elected our own Georg Ulbrich state president. Ulbrich is the current TGS Fayette County Chapter president as well.

The TGS has its origins here in our county. In 1983 four or five German-heritage citizens of Fayette County started the Society. Their leader – the one who had the idea to start TGS – was La Grange’s Alfred Drescher, who became the first president. Glenn Guettler was treasurer who oversaw the coffers, which amounted to $92.00 at the time.
