Firsthand Stories of People Impacted by Prosecution and Prison: A Panel Discussion Co-Hosted with FAMM
More than 2 million people are in prison in America, yet we rarely encounter their stories or perspectives. Join us to hear from individuals who have served long prison sentences, someone waiting for a loved one to come home, and a former prosecutor now advocating criminal justice reform.
APPLE BUTTER FROLIC

This popular autumn festival, hosted by the Mennonite Heritage Center, has been enjoyed by the local community for over 40 years. The frolic is an opportunity to learn how Mennonites and their neighbors lived 100 or more years ago, with folk craft demonstrations, horse and wagon rides, and delicious Pennsylvania German food.
