Not only the businesses, but also the clubs in the region are affected by the corona pandemic. It has always been the custom of the weisendorf local history society to present the new yearbook at the general meeting in march and to distribute it to the members. The yearbook for 2020 is also available, but it has to find new ways to reach its readers.
The yearbook contains the dates on which the members of the association are active in the village of weisendorf. However, this year, with great probability, not a few of them will have to be cancelled. The result is a 168-page volume with interesting and amusing facts from the past club year as well as essays worth reading.
