Gemuetlichkeit Days Royalty-Present and Past

The 2016 Gemuetlichkeit Days King Dan and Queen Erin Geyer

Dan is the son of Ronald and Andrea Geyer of Jefferson.  He is a 1991 graduate of Jefferson High School. He owns and operates Geyer Construction, a masonry and concrete business.  Dan is an avid fisherman, loving to spend time outdoors.

Erin is the daughter of Robert and LuAnn Mattke of Jefferson.  She is a 1995 graduate of Jefferson High School and a 1996 graduate of Scientific College of Beauty/Barbering in Madison.  Erin is the Co-Owner of B.E. Hive Hair Salon & Spa in Jefferson with business partner Barb Kersten.  This year marks B.E. Hive’s 10 year anniversary in business.  B.E. Hive Hair Salon & Spa is a full service AVEDA Concept salon and spa.

The new King and Queen will be celebrating their 14th anniversary in September. They are blessed with two beautiful daughters.  Gracie is 12 years old and attends Jefferson Middle School.  Ava is 9 years old and attends East Elementary School in Jefferson.  The girls love being involved with their Dance Team, Swim Team, and hanging out with friends and cousins.

Dan and Erin are members of St. Mark’s Lutheran Church in Jefferson.  They enjoy spending time with family and friends camping, bike riding, and watching their daughters’s many events.

Dan’s German Heritage can be traced back to 1853 when Ernest Wolff was born in Hilgendorf, Germany.  He came to Lake Mills, WI in 1881.  The Geyer family also has family from Bavaria, Germany.  Erin’s German Heritage travels back to Gustov B. Adler who made the trip from Prussia to Milwaukee, WI in 1853 and became a US citizen.

The Geyers would like to thank Tim & Debbie Koehler (2013), Bob & Sherry Gruennert (2014), and Tony & Michelle Haffelder (2015) for their guidance and support for this amazing experience.  We are honored to have been chosen 2016 Gemuetlichkeit King and Queen.  We will forever be Deutsch im Herzen — German at Heart!
