Annual Erntedankfest will be held on Sunday, September 23, 3 to 6 p.m.


What's an Erntedankfest? It's a very old German celebration of a successful harvest, a celebration that continues even today in Germany.
Do you have German ancestry? You may be interested in attending, finding out a little more about the German people and customs. 

Our guests will enjoy not only the truly German-style meal, but will also come away with reminders of the lives of our German-ancestor farmers, who had every reason to celebrate their assurance of another year's food supply, based on the fruits of the year's harvest.
