Gemuetlichkeit Days List of Presidents

The respective King and Queen rule over the festival, but the President leads the organization throughout the year to prepare for each Gemuetlichkeit Days. This includes coordinating the committees responsible for the music, contests, set up, decorations, food vendors, beverages, advertising, the parade and tear down. This is a major responsibility and takes considerable effort on the part of the President.  A special thank you goes out to these special people who have helped lead the Gemuetlichkeit Days organization over the years.  Of course, the President does not do all of the work. It takes many dedicated people to make each festival a success. A special thank you also goes out to everyone who has volunteered their time and energy over the years.
