One of the advantages to living amongst the Amish is having the opportunity to attend Amish functions. This is something I never had a chance to do while living in California. Benefit dinners are one of my favorite. Last week, one of the nearby communities had a fish fry that our family attended. The week prior, a different Amish district had a chicken dinner. (See photos.) Over the weekend, our neighbors held their semi-annual sale, in which I picked up a few goodies for some of my giveaways. We would have bought baked goods too, but they had sold out. I did, however, pick up some yummy dandelion jelly!
The welcoming committee!

Isn’t this little wall hanging adorable? I just might have to hang it up in my writing cottage!
What about YOU? Do you live near any Amish communities? If so, do you have a favorite event that you enjoy attending? I’d love to hear about your experiences! (If you don’t live around any Amish communities, what Amish-related event would you most like to attend if you had the opportunity?)
