The First United Methodist Men’s Breakfast, scheduled for this upcoming Sunday, will feature a special guest speaker.

The breakfast is slated for 8 a.m. Sunday, Jan. 12. The speaker for this event will be Eve Leach, who was born in Northeastern Germany the year Hitler came to Power. Leach will use the program to tell the story of how she left communist controlled Germany.

Leach’s family moved to a province called Saxony Auhault when she was just six years old. At age 10, all girls had to join the German Girl Scouts (Hitler Youth).

Although the war was over when she was 12, the Russians occupied her area and she had to leave school at 14 to enter an apprenticeship.  At age 22, through chance circumstances, she was able to come to America, leaving family and friends behind.

All men are invited to attend the event, which will include breakfast.
