Some schedule changes due to Tropical Storm Barry:
- Yes, we’re open and back to our regular hours!
- Friday July 12 Wine Tasting will be rescheduled. New date will be announced soon.
- Wednesday July 10 Kino showing of Star War’s A New Hope (in German) has been rescheduled to July 24. The sequence of Star Wars 4-6 in German will happen, just each approximated two weeks later than originally planned.
We owe a large thank you to the Red Dress Run Foundation! The foundation granted $5000 to Deutsches Haus for the purchase of a big outside fan for the overhang of the Warehouse. Neil Barnett did the research as well as the pricing and specification to purchase the proper fan to be installed within the grant’s restrictions. Dean Arnett and Brian Huber completed the grant application for the Haus. The volunteers that stepped up to do the installation free of charge were Barney Ryan, Ed Ryan, and Neil Barnett.
Appreciation is due to the Red Dress Run Foundation and all those who made this happen.
A German visitor visited the new Haus this spring and wrote about it on her blog. She tells some of the history of Germans in New Orleans and about how she found the Deutsches Haus. For a view from a different perspective read the whole article at German Girl in America.
