The Post travels to Germany


N-Post-travels-Germany-Gillow,-Balon

The Post recently traveled to Dresden, Germany, with Kim Gillow and Mary Balon, of Solon Township, and their friend Harry Eastwood, of Australia. They spent two weeks travelling through Poland, Germany, and Austria visiting important WWII sites, including concentration camps, the Nuremburg courthouse and Hitler’s Eagle’s Nest. This picture was taken half way through the trip in the town square in Dresden.

“Every day was interesting and informative,” said Kim, “and the local guides were wonderful.”

Thanks for taking us to Germany with you!

The Post travels to Austria


N-Post-travels-Austria-webDave and Kelley Ringler, who plan to open the Cedar Springs Brewing Company next spring, recently visited Austria and Bavaria and took along a Post. Here Dave is shown in Salzburg, Austria at Kapitelplatz. Note the statue of a man standing on a large golden sphere behind Dave, and a larger than life real chessboard to his left, where people really play chess. A large fortress is behind him, up on the hill.
