Lovina's Amish Kitchen — Wedding prep and washer breakdown: all in a week’s work
Tuesday, July 22, 2014 8:00 PM



All is quiet here at the Eicher household. Everyone has retired for the evening. I will be glad to join them, but I can’t neglect the duty of getting this column ready for the mail tomorrow. I will leave early to go help bake pies at brother Albert’s house.

Albert and Sarah Irene’s daughter, Irene, is getting married to Levi Raber on Wednesday. I will be a cook at the wedding, so some of us go to help prepare whatever needs to be done and bake pies. I still need to sew my cape and apron for the wedding. I finished my dress. Daughter Elizabeth and her friend, Timothy, are table waiters and Elizabeth has to wear the color berry. She has her outfit all sewn. It’s such a help to me that she can cut out and sew her own dress, cape, and apron.

VAN WERT — From talks that started nearly 10 years ago, a brand new Rabbit Barn at the Van Wert County Fairgrounds is finally close to reality.

Truly a community effort and over two years of fund raising has paid off. The Van Wert Youth and Adult Rabbit Clubs, the 4-H’s Bunny Hoppers, rabbit exhibitors from all clubs and members of the community have managed to raise funds to provide new accommodations to the over 600 rabbits per year that visit during fair week.
