The aim of the Society shall be to foster the heritage and culture of people from German speaking countries within the framework of Canadian society, through social, cultural and educational activities.


The Lloydminster German Heritage Society was inaugurated late in 1991. The founding members of the Society are Rose Brassard, Hans Strunk, and Heinz Stolle, who are all active today. The majority of our current members were original members of the Society.

The first Oktoberfest was held October 1992 and continues to be held annually on every Friday, October 4.

Our founding members were recognized in 2003 as Special Volunteers by the Saskatchewan German Council. Richard Starke, one of the original members was also recognized in 2004 for his contribution to the Society.
