Our Neighbors, the Amish

Dianne and Don Kramer

Our Neighbors, the Amish is a two-hour presentation given by Don and Dianne Kramer.  It’ll be held Thursday, September 19th, 6-8pm, at the West Branch Public Library in our Community Room.

Don and Dianne are surrounded by three Amish communities, and it has been through their interactions with the Amish – plus through extensive research – that they have been able to gather, organize, and present their “findings” about these humble, kind, intriguing people.  Don and Dianne truly love sharing what they’ve learned, and they look forward to meeting you and sharing their stories.
