Happy Holidays from the Goethe-Zentrum Atlanta!

Can you believe it’s that time of the year again guys? Neither can we! This year seems to have flown by and we’ve enjoyed celebrating and sharing out 40th anniversary year with you, our loyal members, donors, students and supporters! Now though, it’s time to close our doors for the Holidays, relax and enjoy the season with family and friends before starting the New Year bigger and better than ever!

Happy Holidays

You have supported a whole host of programs this year, from the Elysée Treaty celebration in January, to the opening of the Luther Exhibition in October and lots of events in between such as the Mathematics You Can Touch exhibition, the 18th Annual European Wine Tasting and of course the Goethe 40th Birthday Ball to name just a few! It’s been a great year at the Goethe-Zentrum Atlanta but one that couldn’t have been possible without YOU! Thank you for making it so special.

As we head home to celebrate the Holidays, we thought you might like to know about our Holiday closings:
