Stop by the Mennonite Heritage Center on Saturday morning, February 7, for a warm cup of coffee and donuts, in anticipation of Pennsylvania German “Fasnacht Day” the following week. Admission by donation.
MHC archivist Forrest Moyer will give a one-hour illustrated talk: “Introduction to Mennonites of Eastern Pennsylvania” at 10:00 a.m.
Many groups identify as Mennonite, from Old Order horse-and-buggy Mennonites to progressive groups who pursue higher education, travel and work around the world. This presentation will highlight common values of the various Mennonite groups, and differences that can seem perplexing at times. The presentation will focus on the Mennonite community centered in Montgomery and Bucks Counties, PA.
