EASTER EGG HUNT

The Easter Egg Hunt is an event produced by the Deutsches Haus

The Deutsches Haus has many events and interesting things to do all year long and is an important contributor to our community.  The Deutsches Haus has partnered with the Faubourg St. John Neighborhood Association year after year to help “Feed the First” each Mardi Gras weekend.

Feed the First” provides  3  meals each day during the long Mardi Gras weekend to the N.O.P.D. officers of the 1st District.   The officers work extremely long hours during the Mardi Gras weekend and are very grateful for  the hot meals and treats that the “Feed the First” initiative provides.

DEUTSCHES HAUS HISTORY, PURPOSE, and MISSION

Incorporated in 1928, the Deutsches Haus was formed as a benevolent and social organization which evolved from the Deutsche Gesellschaft von New Orleans and several other Deutsche groups. The Deutsche Gesellschaft, whose origins dated back to 1848, provided support for the numerous German immigrants in the New Orleans area, providing them meals and housing, helping them find employment, and assisting them in reaching their ultimate destination in the United States and assisting in become U S Citizens.

Expanding on its foundation, the Deutsches Haus grew into an organization with a mission to celebrate and foster the rich culture, musical heritage, language and history of the German people. Our Oktoberfest and Volksfest Festivals features authentic German music, food and beverages for all to enjoy, as well as activities for the kids. These events are an opportunity for our local groups to generate revenue which is used to help sustain us throughout the year and assist in sponsoring future events celebrating our German heritage. But most importantly, these festivals introduce our German heritage to the New Orleans population. We sponsor speakers and German films about issues and events of interest to the German-American community that are free and open to the public.

Deutsches Haus established a scholarship fund, and working in conjunction with the University of New Orleans, Center Austria promotes the German language and German history for students chosen by the University to study in Germany during the summer.

Support is provided for the Deutsches Haus Damenchor and Mannerchor fostering our German musical heritage. Meeting space is provided for the International German speaking fraternity, Schlaraffia, promoting friendship, art, and humor.

We sponsor and support Benjamin Franklin High School and Jesuit High School, of New Orleans, in promoting German music and language through the free use of the Haus and grounds for fund raising activities for their exchange student programs and language programs.

In addition, we support other ethnic organizations, especially the Irish and Irish-Americans. We grant use of the Haus to the Irish to promote the Irish contribution to New Orleans. We offer the Haus for Irish dance and musical groups within the city, as well as, to traveling groups.

We are a Non-Profit Public Charity Corporation as defined in the Internal Revenue Section 501 (c) (3) with a volunteer Board of Directors and Officers.

The Deutsches Haus is proud to have one of the largest private archives of German memorabilia in the country, presently on extended loan to the Historic New Orleans Collection. (http://www.hnoc.org/)

The archives contain records from various German Consulates located in the city prior to 1870, local German newspapers and periodicals, genealogical records, sheet music and membership roles from early German singing societies and more. In keeping with this tradition as an educational organization the Haus sponsors German language classes, lectures and concerts.

The spirit of “Gemütlichkeit” pervades the Deutsches Haus year-round, but it is especially prominent in the early Autumn. Each year, thousands of people come to the Haus to enjoy the traditional German cuisine (everything from Schnitzel to Sauerkraut), dancing in the Biergarten, favorite folksongs and German beer and wine, all part of the annual Oktoberfest celebration. The Haus holds a number of other special events and festivals throughout the year, including Volkfest, Faschingfest (a Carnival celebration), and Tirolnacht, an evening for Austrian exchange students.

The Faubourg St. John Neighborhood Association is hosting its annual “Feed the First” event this Mardi Gras weekend.

Faubourg St. John provides a hot breakfast and lunch to the First District NOPD officers working during the Mardi Gras weekend, with shifts that can last up to 12 hours.

“You can’t believe how satisfying it is to see these poor officers come in from their shifts and we feed them and everybody’s in a much better mood,” Linda Landesberg, head of Faubourg St. John Neighborhood Association events, said at last month’s meeting.

According to Landesberg, the association will provide breakfast and lunch for about 80 officers for four days at the First District station. Bagged lunches are also provided for officers along the parade route as well.

“There is a group of us that go and we actually bring a hot breakfast and serve our First District NOPD on Saturday, Sunday and Tuesday and we also do two hot lunches for them on Saturday afternoon and on Monday afternoon,” Landesberg said.

This year, Faubourg St. John will partner with Deutches Haus, Parkway Bakery, Terrenova’s and The Ruby Slipper for breakfast and lunch food items.

Landesberg said the event normally costs the association about $1500 to get, prepare and serve the food. At the meeting, she described the hard work that goes into making the officers’ healthy breakfasts and snacks, with association members starting preparation at 4 a.m.

“We have a great time doing it, but we’re pretty exhausted afterwards,” she said. “It’s a really nice community event and the officers are happy.”

Help Park at the Haus

Posted in Featured with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 21, 2013 by katrinafilm

Volunteers Needed

As you know, we are going to use the future home of Deutsches Haus at 1700 Moss Street (near the corner of Esplanade Ave. and Moss St.) to raise money for the new Haus.

However, we still have several things to do at the Moss St. property before we are ready to park cars for Jazzfest.

Here are some of the items on our “To-Do” list:

Put up orange fencing

Cut numerous conduits and protrusions on the slabs

Put up the banner and other signs

Mark and stake out hazards

Trim some tree branches

Designate ‘no parking’ areas on the slabs

Pick up rocks and debris

Mark some initial parking spaces

Treat residual ant piles

Clear an interior sidewalk

Install a 2×4 step down from the 3rd District slab

Secure the fence perimeter and prop the cemetery fence with 2x4s

Weather permitting; I will be working on site Thursday (9am-4pm), and Friday (9am-4pm). Check the volunteer tab on our website for more details.

Also, weather permitting; our final setup will be on Wednesday. April 24th. Again, I will post this under the volunteer tab on our website.

Parking cars at our Moss Street location is a revenue-producing venture for the new Haus; HOWEVER, at the moment, it looks like we will not be able to open the gates everyday due to the lack of volunteers.

WE NEED MORE VOLUNTEERS!

The following is the number of volunteers we need for each shift:

Friday, April 26th, 1st shift – 6 needed
Friday, April 26th, 2nd shift – 12 needed
