I think this is what you mean??

+ ' is scheduled for ' + substring(CONVERT(VARCHAR(20), @strdate, 102),1,10)

+ ' from ' + substring(CAST(DATEPART(hh,@strstarttime) as varchar(20)),12, + ':' + CAST(DATEPART(mi,@strstarttime) as varchar(20)) + ' to ' + substring(convert(varchar(20),@strendtime,102),12,8) + '.'

Hi,

> + ' is scheduled for ' + CONVERT(VARCHAR(20), @strdate, 102)
> -- How can I just have text date output from this above?

try
select CONVERT(VARCHAR(20), getdate(), 102)

select CONVERT(VARCHAR(10), getdate(), 102)

Both of these return the same string - just varying lengths.

> + ' from ' + CAST(DATEPART(hh,@strstarttime) as varchar(20)) + ':' + CAST(DATEPART(mi,@strstarttime) as varchar(20)) + ' > to ' + @strendtime + '.'
> -- How can I just display that time instead of a whole timestamp?

try
select convert( varchar( 20 ), getdate(), 114 )

You should look up the cast and convert entry in BOL. CAST and CONVERT (Transact-SQL)

There is a table listing the standard date time formats.

Please remove this question.  I found the answers:

+ ' is scheduled for ' + CONVERT(VARCHAR(20), @strdate, 102)
-- How can I just have text date output from this above?

CONVERT(CHAR(12),@strdate, 107) -- Output is May 11, 2006

+ ' from ' + CAST(DATEPART(hh,@strstarttime) as varchar(20)) + ':' + CAST(DATEPART(mi,@strstarttime) as varchar(20)) + ' to ' + @strendtime + '.'
-- How can I just display that time instead of a whole timestamp?

SUBSTRING(CONVERT(VARCHAR(20),@strendtime, 100), 13, 7)  -- Output is 2:57PM
