90 Thousand – 90 Days – 90 Years

Let’s Celebrate our 90th year!

As one of the oldest and largest cultural organizations in the city, we are proud of our mission to celebrate and foster the rich culture, musical heritage, language and history of the Germanic people. Construction of our new Deutsches Haus on Bayou St John is underway with completion anticipated in the fall of this year in time to celebrate our 90th anniversary in our new home.

We invite our members and friends to help us recognize this historic milestone by coming together to raise $90,000 in 90 days and celebrate our 90th Anniversary.

The New Haus

Construction is well underway on the new Haus on Moss Street across from City Park.  In January, the foundation was finished and the steel started to go up.  In late February, the roof trusses were put up.  In March, the exterior shape of the building was complete.  Now in May, look at the lovely back terrace.  It looks out towards the oak trees and should be shaded in the afternoon.

Ladies Auxiliary and Birney School

The Ladies Auxiliary made a donation to the Alice Birney School for them to buy 20 headphones for use with their computers in the classroom. It means that the class can all be on the computers at the same time doing their lessons.

The Deutsches Haus Ladies Auxiliary would like to recognize the work that teachers do often spending their own money to provide their classrooms with supplies and needed materials. Jefferson Parish was supportive of the Haus and its activities and festivals over the past 8 or so years. This is the Ladies Auxiliary’s way of saying thank you by giving some support to a Jefferson Parish School. They support early education as a way of developing good students, concerned citizens and happy adults.
