This chronicle is incomplete.

The founders of the association often only vaguely remember the events of that time or cannot be found anymore, and the files are very difficult to obtain. Therefore, I ask all former members to supplement and correct this preliminary version.

Please write your comments directly on the notice board at the alumni meeting on the white sheets or send us old files and private photos, especially from the period between 1971 and 1977. We will send everything back to you upon request. Additionally, we kindly ask you to leave us your current address so that we can contact you again for further association research.

Please also write articles for us, for example, about the founding history of businesses and committees or simply anecdotes about your life in the village and the association at that time. For the 25th anniversary of the association, we are planning a real book about the association, with chronicles, photos, and essays. It would be great if you could contribute to making this book include everything that is worth reading, seeing, and knowing, such as the development of student housing culture in OlyDorf.
