In late April I received this kind email below.

Your Worship,

On his way to Banff on May 8th, 2014, Consul General Hermann Sitz and his wife Niina would like to profit of the occasion to make a stop-over in Salmon Arm for a courtesy call.

Since it is unfortunately uncertain when he will arrive exactly, he would like to take the opportunity and invite you and your partner for a dinner on that day. Hopefully your busy schedule has still some room.

It was an unexpected honour to be invited to dine with Consul General for Germany and his wife. Harry and I met them at Table 24 for what turned out to be a three hour dinner. They were very interested in all of you, the citizens of Salmon Arm and asked many questions about our economy. As it turned out they arrived in Salmon Arm earlier than expected so they walked down to the wharf before dinner. They were enthralled with Shuswap Lake, the mountains and our City. It is always nice to see our beautiful town and surrounding area through the eyes of someone who is seeing this beauty for the first time.
