Prominent visitor in Saxony House
Willi Lemke, special advisor to the UN Secretary-General on Sport for Peace and Development, was received yesterday, on Thursday, by Hans-Juergen Goller as first prominent guest in Saxony House in Vancouver. He was on his way to an official appointment in the German House but his route plan took him to the Vancouver Rowing Club. Chief of the House, Hans-Juergen Goller, took this opportunity to cordially invite him to a tour through Saxony House to show him the location and program. Willy Lemke thanked him with a nice gesture and placed the first signature on the so far virgin signature board in Saxony House, which the Tourismus Marketing Gesellschaft Sachsen prepared for all prominent guests to sign, before the opening. Saxony House opens its doors tonight as meeting point for athletes, politicians, business partners and guests of the XXI Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver, starting today.
