It is time for us to celebrate being Friends yet again. “Friends World Committee for Consultation (FWCC) invites every Quaker meeting and church from around the world to celebrate WORLD QUAKER DAY (WQD) on October 4, 2015. To observe this, we are doing it up fall style at Wendel Farms. Please meet us at 8134 N. State Line Road, Brookville, IN 47012 at 2 PM on October 4. While this farm is on Stateline Road in Brookville, Indiana for a mailing address, it is in both Indiana and Ohio.
The admission price is inclusive of all of the many activities except for the pumpkins you pick you will pay by the pound. The rates are $7 for adults, $6 for children 12 and under, and children 2 and under are free. The time is 2-5PM. There will be pumpkin carving at 5:30pm, at Salem Friends Church 1807 S. Salem Road Liberty, Indiana 47353.
West Elkton Friends invites you to come with us, and join in our celebration of this special day both focusing on the transformation and the awaiting of creation to reveal that of God in all of us. We know that repeatedly, yearly, change happens with our seasons, and the colors of fall remind us of that. Winter is approaching and we know the difficulties it brings to gathering together. So this could not come at a better time to celebrate what it means to be a Quaker in today’s society. Living the Transformation is the theme and fall with its colors and hints of change are examples of what it means to be Friends who are Living Transformation, letting our lives preach. We can get out and be with one another while we enjoy the company of each other through laughter and celebration of the fall and harvest times.
The people at the farm say that they are excited about some of their new Farmland activities such as milking the “cow”, digging for potatoes in the vegetable patch, and the Trike Track. “We welcome you to our farm for a fun filled and educational visit.” We had a blast last year with Salem Friends as we rode tricycles, rolled large tubes with our kids in them dryer style, walked the corn maze, rode in a hay wagon, and picked pumpkins. You would think I was talking about the kids, but we adults had a good time too. There are also a lot of educational activities for the children as well as a wonderful pumpkin patch with many varieties of exotic and heirloom pumpkins and gourds.
If you can let us know by Sunday, September 27th that would be great.
