Not only her home town of schernau, but also dettelbach is close to elfriede maurer’s heart.

Here she worked for decades as a waitress in the catering trade. That was the jubilarian but also in other communities.

And in general: club life in schernau has a high priority for the jubilarian. As well as an intact family life. "I have great kids, that’s important for me," reports maurer.
