On Monday, 18 September, the newcomers' aperitif took place in the community hall.
Those invited were welcomed with an impressive performance by the alphorn players "Echo vo dä Bärenegg". Municipal President Stefan Hermann gave the newcomers an insight into the municipality of Walchwil and introduced the individual members of the municipal council.
Manuel Studer, Head of Education/Culture, compared his village with the Gallic village in France and presented its history in words and pictures. He emphasised the stoic character and the cohesion of the people of Walchwil. Brigitte van Dulmen and Patrick Willemsen showed pictures of the many activities and events organised by the associations. They recommended the newcomers to join an association for a quick integration.
After the presentation, the invited guests enjoyed a delicious aperitif to the sound of the alphorn and were presented with cheese, honey and kirsch from Walchwil before going home.
