The members of the Yodel Club Heimattreu are living in the Calgary / Banff / Olds area in the Province of Alberta. We are all of Swiss heritage and are dedicated to uphold, practice and perform Swiss Yodel songs in traditional and authentic Swiss costumes.

With the death of Gary von Wyl the members of the Yodel Club Heimattreu lost a great friend!  Gary's excellent tenor voice and outgoing and helpful personality will always be remembered.
Gary joined the Yodel Club Heimattreu in 2001 and left in 2018 to spend more time with his wife Clara.

"Wir werden Dich, lieber Gary, immer in Erinnerung behalten."
