Gery Ryter (Alp Mittenbach, Saanen) took 2nd place in the category of Hobelkäse at the 17th Alpkäse premiere at Olma, the popular Swiss agriculture and food fair held yearly in St. Gallen. The award is a strong confirmation for Ryter's hard work during the summer on the alp.
JFK students from kindergarten to the upper grades spent 30 minutes Saanen and along the Saanenufers with a «clean-up» crew. They found a surprising amount of waste in such a short time. So they decided that this was certainly not the last time they would organise this activity. Bravo to everyone!
