German students plan a celebration


Bratwurst can be a good choice when planning a Sunday afternoon football gathering. Come to think of it, bratwurst can be a good choice for a German festival, too.

It's a sure bet, then, that there will be plenty of bratwurst around Farmington High School on Sunday. And sauerkraut. And pork schnitzel, roesti and kartoffelsalat for that matter.
