Thank You, Veterans!

Joseph Ambrose, an 86-year-old World War I veteran, attends the dedication day parade for the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in 1982, holding the flag that covered the casket of his son, who had been killed in the Korean War.

World War I ended at 11 am on November 11, 1918.  A year later, when President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed November 11 of every year as Armistice Day, he said:

“To us in America, the reflections of Armistice Day will be filled with lots of pride in the heroism of those who died in the country’s service and with gratitude for the victory, both because of the thing from which it has freed us and because of the opportunity it has given America to show her sympathy with peace and justice in the councils of the nations.”

In 1953,  Alfred King, who owned a shoe store in Emporia, Kansas, had the idea to extend Armistice Day to include all veterans.  The Emporia Chamber of Commerce got behind the idea, and, a year later,  got a bill through Congress changing Armistice Day to Veterans day, to honor all of America’s veterans.

While some calendars list it as Veteran’s Day, or Veterans’ Day (both are grammatically correct), the official spelling is Veterans Day.  Source

Gästehaus Schmidt would like to thank the Veterans of all our wars for the service and sacrifice.

July 4th Hours

Our office will have shorter hours on July 4th. We will be open from 10 am until 4 pm. Also, the annual 4th of July Parade begins at 10 am, and the city closes Main Street about 9:30 am. If you are checking out of July 4, you may return your keys after the parade. (You still have to leave the property you are staying in at 11 am, unfortunately.)

We hope you enjoy your holiday in Fredericksburg, Texas, and the Texas Hill Country.

Our office will be open abbreviated hours on Monday, May 25. We will be open from 10 am to 4 pm. If you have a reservation arriving on Monday, please make sure you have the information sheet on your property. It has the key arrangements on it.

Welcome to Our New Website!

After several months of work, we have launched our new website.  We hope you like all the hard work that has been done.

The new site has room for larger pictures, and is easier for us to change than the old one.  We’ve also added a blog where you can keep up with the things going on in at Gästehaus Schmidt.

Please let us know what you think, or make a suggestion by posting a comment.
