The first 5 German names were found in the land-grants of Bowman Township in The self-contained German settlement of High Falls was officially incorporated in the Township of Bowman in 1871, their homesteads loosely connected to its Center with their own church, cemetery, school, store and Post-office. High Falls grew and prospered from 80 members in 1871 to 141 in 1891, but developed slower in the following years due to shortage of available land for the 36 families and 171 members of St. Paul s Lutheran Church in The tireless invaluable research in Anne Schnurr s book was instrumential in the erection of this plaque! From 1860 to 1929! The above plaque lists 96 peoples by burial date (from 1860 to 1929) in the orginal High Falls Cemetery. The plaque is located in the graveyard behind St. Paul's Lutheran Church in Bowman, Quebec. Mayor Michael David stated he was not aware of this German settlement until he read Ann Schnurr s book Tracing Their Footsteps. Mayor David and his councillors of the Municipality of Bowman, were instrumental in taking action for this plaque dedication. From the left: 1st row: Stanley Cheslock, Reverend Lockstat, Dr. Somers. 2nd row: Mrs. Ann Schnurr, Mayor Michel David, Jean Dubuc. 3rd row: Jacinthe Brière, Pierre Labonté, Roger Madore, Mario Thibault After the erection of the MacLaren power dam in 1930 and in preparation of the impendent flooding of High Falls and surroundings, all residents had to leave their homesteads and relocate, while 41 of these families chose to stay in neighbouring communities. The gravestones of the higher situated High Falls cemetery emerged on a small island, later named Cemetery Island. In the late 1980 s the gravestones were re-assembled in the present St. Paul Lutheran Church Cemetery in Bowman. On September 28, 2014, the municipality of Bowman, in partnership with St. Paul s Lutheran Church and Brookfield Renewable Energy, erected this memorial to perpetuate the memory of the 96 people who to this day still rest in the ground of Cemetery Island. Just a few miles from the original High Falls, the families and friends of the German descendants gathered for a ceremony to erect a plaque in memory of the 96 High Falls settlers, 17 of them infants, whose graves sunk beneath the waters. In 1929, the MacLaren Power-Dam on the Lievre River was built and great parts of the farmland in the vicinity of the river flooded affecting 156 farming families of High Falls, Bowman and Val des Bois!

She was elected September 26th, 2014 during a live TV show. Judith Dorst from 'Rheinhessen' and Kathrin Schnitzius from the 'Mosel' region were elected as Wine Princesses in the two hour c o ntest. Th e i n d ividua l performances were judged by a jury of 70 media and wine industry experts. All three winners below from the left: Judith Dorst (Rheinhessen) Janina Huhn (Pfalz), and Kathrin Schnitzius (Mosel) Janina Huhn being crowned by last years wine queen Nadine Poss. represent regions that belong to the state of Rheinland-Pfalz (Rhineland-Palatinate RLP) in the southwest of Germany.

They also had to improvise speeches in German as well as English language. Janina Huhn, * , Bad Dürkheim Praktikantin im Weingut Pfeffingen, Bad Dürkheim Der Geruch von Weingut ist für mich ein Kindheitsgeruch , sagt Janina Huhn. Der Vater ist Weinbautechniker und arbeitet beim Winzerverein Deidesheim, Janina war von klein auf mit im Keller. Weil Kultur sie immer faszinierte, studierte Janina nach dem Abitur Geschichte in Freiburg und Heidelberg. Ihre Bachelor-Arbeit schrieb sie über das Symposion des Plato. Das war Social Drinking in der Antike , sagt Janina: Es ging darum, die Freundschaft untereinander zu stärken. Dass der Wein in ihrem Leben eine größere Rolle spielen soll merkte Janina, als sie Wein von zuhause ihren Kommilitonen anpries und als sie 2012 ihre erste Rede als Bad Dürkheimer Weinprinzessin hielt. Da habe ich entdeckt, dass ich gerne auf Bühnen stehe und mich für die Weine meiner Heimat einsetze - da war's um mich geschehen , sagt die 24-Jährige. Derzeit macht sie ein Praktikum im Weingut Pfeffingen, bei der International Wine School in London hat sie ebenfalls bereits ein Seminar besucht. Dort würde Janina gerne die Ausbildung zum Weinakademiker machen. Am liebsten würde ich das, was ich als Weinkönigin tue, zu meinem Job zu machen , sagt sie. Als Deutsche Weinkönigin würde Janina den Status des Weins als Kulturgut hervorheben - Wein hat in unserer Gesellschaft seit Jahrhunderten ein außerordentliches Ansehen, das ist heute besonders aktuell. 4 The HBH News July / Aug / Sept / 2014 and Speciality Meat Shop Catering Deli Sandwiches European Cuisine BBQ Specialities Owner: Ivan Saric We have imported European groceries, and make all kinds of deli & cheese trays.
