Our Chapter's Purpose
Our chapter's purpose is to bring together people interested in the history and heritage of Germans from Russia. Through a better understanding and appreciation of our culture and heritage, we will promote the preservation of our history for future generations.
Our Chapter was formed in 1972 in order to reach out to those Germans from Russia who live in the greater Saginaw Valley region. The Chapter encourages historical interest and genealogical research as well as fellowship at our meetings throughout the year.
Local chapter dues are $5 per person or $8.00 for husband and wife.
