During an extended chapel time students were first quizzed on their knowledge of Germany and enlightened with some obscure information. Alyssa Boeker, a senior from Germany, shared videos and PowerPoint pictures about her home. Stu- dents responded with questions. Karenza Kroeker led the stu- dents in a German hymn, "Gott ist die Liebe" and taught them (with Alyssa's help) a short Ger- man prayer. The entire student body enjoyed "Kafee Trinken" in the foyer. Cookies served with the coffee were Lebkuchen (ginger- bread), Spritgebick (butter cook- ies), and Springerle (anise cook- ies). Like the Germans they took time to enjoy a break and visit with their friends. Later a special German lunch was served. They enjoyed Currywurst (bratwurst with curry), Bratkartoffeln (fried potatoes), Rotkohl (red cabbage) and Obstkuchen (fruit torte).
