amish NF

Join the Independence Public Library in welcoming Don and Dianne Kramer for an insightful presentation about our neighbors, the Amish. The Kramers live near Amish communities and have gathered information about this intriguing culture over the years. They will share many aspects of the Amish lifestyle and beliefs including marriage, homes, schools, clothing, Rumspringa and much more. 

Free and open to the public, the multi-media presentation will begin at 2:00 pm on September 24th at ABCM East Rehabilitation Center, and an evening presentation will be held at the Independence Public Library at 6:30 pm. The Kramers will also present at ABCM West Wednesday, September 25th at 2:00 pm.
