The pavilion at the Park is the meeting place for anything and everything. It is designed for such things. This afternoon there was a meeting about the Nicholas Stoltzfus House in Berks County Pennsylvania. I am under the impression every Lancaster person with Amish roots traces back to Nicholas Stoltzfus. Today there was a meeting at the park concerning Nicholas Stoltzfus Homestead. Their website is: Nicholas Stoltzfus
Below are some pictures of the meeting.

Opening up the Meeting. I think Paul Kurtz was the speaker.
Coming in barefooted is perfectly okay. The only Nichols Stoltzfus I knew was a preacher in Aylmer Ontario and he would preach in his bare feet, while the sweat poured from his mutza. He had to wear the mutza because all Amish preachers do. At least they did...
A few historians from elsewhere were in the crowd too.
It was interesting while I was there, even if I am not a Stoltzfus.
