Swiss Believers
Drei Königs Tag

January 9, 2005

Ted & Esther Payne's, Lancaster, South Carolina

This year our get-together didn't have a planned program. Hans Moser welcomed us.

Our hostess Esther Payne.

We had a chocolate Tête de Moine which gave flower-like chocolate shavings.

Hans was delighted to hold Ted's 1939 Swiss Military rifle, which reminded him of his days in the army.

Many of these kids only see each other at the Swiss Believers get-togethers and have become good friends!

Stuffing our faces...

The kids are sitting around the food table, waiting impatiently to start eating.

We had a nice buffet of finger-foods.

Hilda, Lois, Esther.

Chatting is our favorite activity...

Nancy and Bill Henry and Hans Moser watching the video of Hans' Swiss excursion last summer. The Henrys plan to move to Geneva, Switzerland next month.

Ted Payne brought out his collection of Swiss marksmanship medals, which got us started on a long discussion of Swiss military weapons and target shooting.
