President’s Message

Dear Members and Friends,

The new year 2021 started quite excitingly for MGS. After we had to cancel nearly all social and cultural events in 2020, we could organise several activities early in the new year that were well received:

  • New Year Market
  • Wine Tasting as members-only event
  • German Breakfast
  • Movie night
  • Easter Hunt and Brunch
  • DAAD info session for German Language courses
  • Books and Mingle

The MGS team has already thought up several additional ideas for more exiting events this year. Please visit our web homepage or join the MGS Facebook group to keep yourself updated. You are also most welcome, of course, to visit our office and ask Saro or Paulynn for latest update on planned events.

Unfortunately, we had to postpone the MGS Maiball. Due to the Covid 19 pandemic and its related SOPs, we were uncertain of being able to provide the previous years‘ festive admosphere that we are used to. However, the good news is that we will organise, for the first time, a Christmas Ball in December. Please block the following dates in your calendar for the Christmas Ball and the famous MGS Oktoberfest:

  • Oktoberfest  --  22th October 2021 (Friday)
  • Christmas Ball  -- 3rd December 2021 (Friday)

I hope that all of us wil have a great year ahead and that the vaccination programme in Malaysia and around the world will allow us to organise exciting events for the benefit of our members and the society of Penang.

Thank you for your continuous support for MGS. We look forward to seeing you here.

Yours truly,
Wolfgang Mark
