SAHS, formation, organization, separation, Swiss American Center, Swiss culture
This is in response to your message dated 8-20-99 and faxed 8-26-99. After much thought and discussion we have come to the conclusion that a further involvement of the SAHS in the planning of a Swiss American Center to be located in New Glarus has to be suspended to enable the SAHS President to consult by mail the members of the SAHS Board of Advisors as well as the SAHS membership in order to reach a decision whether the SAHS can be a partner in that project as now pursued. The extensive discussions of the past months and especially also your reply to our memorandum of August 15 and 19 have made it clear that a wide gap separates the plans of your group from those we think the SAHS can and should support.
