Lights! Cameras! Action!

The Cheyenne Room of the Parkway Plaza will become something of a German-Russian theater this week. Convention Co-Chair Patti Sellenrick notes that the theater will be open Monday through Wednesday with a variety of videos, such as A Soulful Sound and Marvin Ziegler’s 1993-94 Trips to Rosenberg, Russia.

There’ll be a daily posting of for DVD showings, videos, and other presentations.

Sellenrick also says there are a variety of options for Youth Activities during the convention. She’ll host an orientation meeting Wednesday afternoon (7/30) at 3 o’clock in Adrian’s room, which is located near the front of the hotel. There’ll be information about things that kids can see and do while they’re in Casper, including some options for activities they can enjoy right at the Parkway Hotel.

The Skylight Room (just above the registration area) will serve as a youth gathering place. Volunteers who’d like to help with the youth activities are encouraged to contact Sellenrick at the convention – or see her Wednesday at 3:00 p.m. in Adrian’s Room.

The International Convention of Germans from Russia open Monday, July 28 and runs through Sunday morning, August 3. It’s a joint session involving the American Historical Society of Germans from Russia and the Germans from Russia Heritage Society.
