• Columbus Retired Teachers
    Once again, OTT came through for CEA-R with flying colors. The day was perfect. Our lunch was so delicious. And the concept of an Amish Wedding was hilarious. I picked a couple that had been married 53 years. The only complaints that I heard after lunch, and it was from just about everyone, was that they were oh so full and/or they hadn't eaten that much in a long time and/or they were about to burst!

    The Yoder Farm was another great part of the tour. We were divided into three groups so that the groups were manageable, Being retired teachers, the one-room schoolhouse was especially interesting. The young Amish teacher probably had not ever had to answer so many questions about her classroom and the curriculum. The big house did have a wonderful aroma, Again, so many left with bags of delicious (I speak from experience) cookies.

    Walnut Creek never fails to impress. I heard comments after guests as they left the wedding feast that they wouldn’t be eating again for a week but they sure made and enjoyed some elaborate sundaes! think most of our members knew exactly what they wanted to buy when they returned to the ground floor because they left the elevator and scattered in all different directions again leaving with packages.

    Interesting observation: many of our members have been to Ohio’s Amish Country but the stops on this trip were new to many of them,

    Thanks to OTT for a wonderfully organized and fun day!
