Deck the Halls with Brats and Strudel
CARMICHAEL, CA (MPG) - Chestnuts roasted, sausages sizzled and strudel were enjoyed at American River Community Church’s third annual German Christmas Fair last weekend. While Pastor Richard Reimer donned holiday apparel – elfen hat and lederhosen – a traditional Santa Claus granted Christmas wishes.
Attendance was boosted by the Sacramento German community, for whom gift markets – fragrant with cider and sauerkraut – are beloved Christmas traditions. Church member Heidi Cadena began the event three years ago as a fundraiser for the congregation’s ministries.
Among Carmichael’s longest-established places of worship, the American River Community Church is located at 3300 Walnut Avenue, Carmichael. Learn more at www.arcconline.org
