Axthelm family gathering postponed until 2022

Dear Axthelms and everyone who identifies with this name!

Due to the still existing pandemic restrictions, I would like to finally inform everyone that the clan meeting planned for May 29, 2021 in Ostramondra cannot take place. Maybe next year there will be the opportunity to catch up on our social event in the same period and under better conditions. For this, however, specific information will follow later.

Happy Pentecost to everyone, health and all the best until then.

Your Karl-Ulrich Axthelm
