25 years after the drawdown and the final closure of Darby Kaserne

You should imagine about 20 people - former members of the German-American Men's Club -  would have been gathering here today in front of the commemorative plaque at Darby Kaserne.
Because of the pandemic situation and the lockdown we could neither assemble there nor celebrate a dine-out afterwards.

On the 16th of December an article appeared in the Fürth "Stadtzeitung" (translation by Google/Jesussek).

On the 19th of December an article appeared in the "Fürther Nachrichten" (translation by Google/Jesussek).
The "Freie Christengemeinde Fürth" is building a parish hall exactly on the spot of the former AFN radio tower. It will house a kindergarten with 3 classes - many young families are now living in the former Darby area. The bell tower of the chapel is to be seen in the middle in the background.
