There was a big crowd to celebrate Trivia Night. Friday July 27 was the last event of any sort at the Metairie Haus which is closing as the final preparations for the move to the New Orleans Haus are underway. There will be a pause in events until Oktoberfest. When the new Haus opens in the autumn, Trivia Nights will resume.
Verses in many languages extol the joys of singing around a glass of beer. The Beer Choir, a new national organization with nearly 20 chapters — now including one in New Orleans — wants to revive that tradition by compiling those songs and giving them a public airing.
The New Orleans Chapter of the Beer Choir (mission: “To make our world a little bit better by singing and drinking together!”) hosts its premiere event Friday at the Deutsches Haus in Metairie.
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.
