Seventh Quinquennial Hochstetler Family Gathering.

The Seventh Quinquennial Jacob Hochstetler Family Association Family Gathering is scheduled to take place this year in Berlin, Ohio, on July 27 and 28. Berlin is a center of Ohio Amish culture and offers all the sightseeing, shopping, eating, and visiting anyone could possibly want, so attendees may want to spend a few extra days in the area.

The Gathering begins with a dinner meeting at 6:30 Friday night at the Heritage Community Center. After dinner Gerald Mast, a historian and professor of communication at Bluffton (Ohio) University, will speak on “Building a Chair for Jesus and other Holmes County Stories from our Genealogy of Faith.”

Saturday’s events begin at 8 a.m. at the Hiland High and Middle School in Berlin and include not only numerous break-out sessions, but also genealogy and other resources, a general meeting, local tours and museum visits, a hymn singing, and more. Both Bob and I are attending and will present a session on “The Truth of Historical Fiction.”
