Below, a couple views of the park and its vegetation and flowers.
The presentation was made and pictures taken. A young German man, Christian Hanold, who grew up in Lahr and who now works at the Canadian Consulate in Bern, Switzerland, presented a bell to honour the closure of Canada Haus. He said that it is traditional in Switzerland to present a cow bell to someone who is leaving, whether retiring or moving on. In this case, it was Canada Haus and its members. It will now have to be decided just where to hang it, as there is no longer a Canada Haus. Christian volunteered at Der Kanadier, the weekly military newspaper (as did I, and where Trisha worked for many years), the year prior to the closure of the paper and of Canadian Forces Base Lahr.
