All are invited to enjoy an authentic Amish-style dinner at the Oak Harbor United Methodist Church at its eighth annual Amish Style Pot Roast Dinner on Thursday, March 22. This year’s dinner will be served buffet style and, as always, it’s all-you-care-to-eat.
Much can be learned from studying the Amish way of life. Their devotion to family and community and their strong work ethic are good examples. The Amish have a strong sense of community spirit, and often come to the aid of those in need.
Our Amish neighbors have been employing horse-drawn power since the days when horsepower had a whole different meaning. In comparison to our fast-paced society, the simpler, family-centered Amish way of life holds a special fascination. They have generously agreed to share a central element of their culture with us again this year to benefit a great cause.
The menu includes: pot roast of beef, mashed potatoes and gravy, traditional handmade bread dressing, amish-made noodles, green beans, cole slaw (an old family recipe), rolls and butter, and desserts.
Tickets are $9 for adults, $4 for children (6-12). Kids under 6 are free.
Dinner will be served from 4:30 to 7 p.m. or until sold out in the Fellowship Hall at the church, 360 E. Ottawa St., Oak Harbor. Carry outs are available with drive-though service.
For reservations, call Darlene at 419-898-0659, Janice at 419-898-5925 or the church office at 419-898-8481.
