New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - March 3, 1995, New Braunfels, Texas Friday, March 3, 1995 ■ Herald-Zeitung ■ 3 New Braunfels homecoming planned for Sesquicentennial As the Sesquicentennial Celebration approaches its peak April 13-23, now is the time to start thinking about a giant homecoming for all of those people who have ever lived in or visited New Braunfels. Many former high school classes, churches, and families are having reunions. The Sesquicentennial Events Committee, sponsored by the Greater New Braunfels Chamber of Commerce, has scheduled a full slate of activities which will take place throughout those ten days which these reunions may participate in. “I was fortunate to return to New Braunfels on April, I, 1970 from my year tour at Tan Son Nhut Air Base in Vietnam," stated Harvey Haas, Chair of the Sesquicentennial Host Homecoming Subcommittee. "My thoughts Were on a family reunion since Karon apd the three girls had homesteaded in New Braunfels,” he continued. •During the time that Haas was returning home, New Braunfels was celebrating its 125th anniversary. Thekla Thorman, his mother-in-law, was hosting two German ladies who survived Russia’s atrocities during World War ll. “It was almost embar rassing the way these German ladies welcomed mc home. They gave mc a present, a bottle of schnapps, and related many World War ll stories to mc,” stated Haas. During this time, many returning veterans were treated shabbily by those people wearing “peace” symbols, the footprints of the American children, but he experienced a positive and moving welcome. To add to the New Braunfels 150th Anniversary, you arc encouraged to have a homecoming in New Braunfels with your friends and neighbors. “At this time, please send a note to some of your former New Braunfels neighbors inviting them to return home to be your guest for the celebration. They won’t sec Laura Nacgclin refusing to sell Centennial visitors in 1945 her bread—'that’s for my regular customers’—but many of the old landmarks and a lot of fond memories still exist,” he continued.
