SAS Welcome

Welcome to the Swiss American Society of Atlanta

The main purposes of our Swiss American Society of Atlanta are:

• to cultivate social life among the Swiss and friends of Switzerland in the area of Atlanta,
• to help preserve the social and cultural heritage,
• and to promote respect and friendship between Switzerland and the United States of America.

What better way to do so than by organizing regular social events!

In a typical SAS year we

• have a picnic, hike, or brunch in spring
• celebrate of course our National Day around the 1st of August
• share the joy of the season at a Christmas Party
• treat our children to a visit by Samichlaus
• Enjoy a real Swiss Fondue night in the winter
• take care of our business at the General Assembly in March
• organize monthly Ladies Luncheons with visits to exhibitions and museums

At all of these events you will meet other Swiss people and make new friends.

We look forward to seeing you!

Guido Walther
President
