Spring in New Bern
It's Spring in New Bern and the town is lovely. This weekend is the deGraffenried Reunion. These are relatives and decendants of Baron Christopher deGraffenried who founded the City of New Bern in 1710. Approximately 100+ people are here from all over the country and from Bern, Switzerland. It's great to see our Swiss friends we met in Bern in December and to meet new friends. Tonight after the reunion dinner, I'll show the UNC TV video of our trip to Switzerland and Germany along with the video of the Bern-New Bern exibit. It's a wonderful time to renew ties with our mother city and the deGraffenried family.
