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.
