DINNER RECEPTION for Berlin Police officers and members of the LAPD and City Officials
Monday, February 17, 2014 at 6 PM
LA Berlin SCC and their president Rosemarie Reisch celebrated a
very special event in honor of the Berlin police officers delegation
on March 13th as a group of 32 Berlin police officers headed by
their team leader, chief of police Guido Jüngling, visited
Los Angeles during the occasion of their participation at the annual
Baker to Las Vegas Charity Run. The grueling race, designed to test
endurance and team spirit, draws 8ooo participants from all over
the world for a 120 miles challenge through the blistering desert
of Nevada. This is the Berliners’ third participation of the
legendary race and visit to Los Angeles.
Guests included Chuck Foots, LAPD, founder of the Baker-Las Vegas race and representatives of the LAPD including Albert Austria, as well as members of the LASD and JPL who mingled with the guest from both continents. Councilmember Tom LaBonge and Isaac Burks, long-time champions of the LA-Berlin Sister Cities, represented the Los Angeles city officials.
An array of gleaming classic vintage cars from the Peterson Auto Museum, generously provided by Barry Malton, studded the front lawn of the residence like exquisite jewels and made an arresting impression as guests ascended the steps toward the reception.
The memorable event concluded as a delegation of ten German soldiers injured in Afghanistan in camouflage outfits made the journey from Camp Pendleton to join the event that culminated in the celebration of the bonds of friendship and support in all areas of public life of the Los Angeles-Berlin Sister Cities.
