Hello All,

The Worthy Grand Matron and Worthy Grand Patron are planning a trip to Amish Country in

Pennsylvania, October 26 thru 29. This is a Tuesday thru Friday. Believe it or not, we couldn’t

get a bus over any weekend in September or October. At this point, the cost of the bus is the

most uncertain amount. The bus will hold 54 passengers. If we fill the bus, the cost per person

will be about $132.00. If we do not fill it the price will be higher per person. Right now we have

37 people interested in going. I was able to speak about this trip at each School of Instruction.

Now I’m trying to reach out to those who have not heard about it yet.

We will be staying at the Bird-In-Hand Family Inn. Room prices are as follows:

     2 people in a room $145/ night

     3 people in a room $164/night

     4 people in a room $183/night

We will be staying 3 nights. Room prices include a smorgasbord breakfast!

The Inn provides a “Step on Guide” who would step onto our bus and direct us

around the area to see interesting things about the Amish people and their way of life. There

would be stops along the way. The cost of this is just tips given by each of us at the end of the

tour.

There are also two theaters that I think would be worth our time.

The Sight and Sound Theatre featuring the story of Queen Esther. How appropriate for us! The

cost would be about $60.

The other Is the Bird-In-Hand Theatre. On the last night we’re there they will begin their

Christmas show. The cost for this one appears to be $39 or $59 for dinner and show.

Hershey, PA is about 40 minutes from Bird-In-Hand so on our last day we will detour to

Hershey for a chocolate fix. The basic tour is free and we are scheduled for 10:00 am. There

are some other activities as well, but we’ll have to consider our time frame.

If you are interested in joining us on this trip then please let me know as soon as possible.
