Hat Stack Supper

 Mother, Katie Beiler and daughter Ruthie (or Barbara) looking over the food before it was time to be served.

 Another two couples visiting. The facing couple are Ivan & Katie (Yoder) Weaver from Evart Michigan.

 The backside of the food line. 

 A plate of Hay Stack. Tonight the Hay Stack consisted of crushed crackers, hamburger, rice, lettuce, tomatoes, onions, olives, green peppers, cheese sauce, salsa, sour cream, taco chips & topped with French Dressing. The servers dished it out and if there was something you didn't want on your plate, you just said "No".

 And for the servings that are too much, well we eat what we can and then just politely cover the rest with a napkin and head for the garbage cans.

 This is the Apple pie, but there were dozens of other pies too, served with ice cream. I never take the desserts. I just can't handle so much food.

 Left to right: Emanuel & Clara Miller from Ohio, Katie & Morris Gingerich from Arthur IL and Reuben Yoder formerly from Arthur, but is a resident of Pinecraft for a number of years.

 I don't know what words to use to describe this little fellow. He is Norm & Barb Borntrager's son.

 Talking with expression.

 Tonight was the first time I saw credit cards accepted. 

The youngest and oldest of Joni and Elsie Yoder Hostetler. A few years ago this family was my neighbor. Mose Yoder in the previous picture is a grandfather to these children.


  1. I really find your blog and photos refreshing. That food looked and sounded so wonderful. Blessings, Susan Fryman

  2. Ok Katie check your heading. Was it a Hay Stack or a Hat Stack supper. ?.

  3. Katie, great pictures! Your photography skills just continue to get better and better. Thanks for sharing.

  4. It was very good. At the end Ervin Raber auctioned off leftover whole pies and salad and some other items. I saw you leaving as we got there.
