Amish Project Welcome Dinner

By Debbie Mills, Park Ranger

You are invited to the Amish Project Welcome Dinner, 6 pm, Monday, March 3, 2014 at Camp

This is an excellent opportunity to learn more about the Indiana Amish Anabaptist Service
Program of Napanee, historic preservation at Catoctin Mountain Park and to meet the Amish
crew that will be volunteering in the park during March.

Dinner will be provided, but our goal is to make the Amish feel welcome and to make their stay
as pleasant and uncomplicated as possible. The group is accompanied by a married couple who
cooks, cleans and does laundry for 8 young men and a total of 12 people each day. There is no
requirement, but, everyone is encouraged to bring a favorite casserole or dessert that will be sent
back to Camp Round Meadow to make life just a little easier for the house staff. Please
remember to send your contribution in a container that does not need to be returned.

The meal will consist of fried chicken, ham and traditional fixings. Please RSVP by responding
to the Doodle poll at http://doodle.com/xtgypt3z8i8h2pdp. Please be sure to make a separate
entry for everyone who will be attending and to hit SAVE before leaving the page.

Please direct questions to Debbie Mills at debbie_mills@nps.gov or by calling 301-663-9388.
