    The Miller Program for the month of April will feature the Amish people and elements of their lifestyle.  A variety of topics including history, religious beliefs, language, family life, occupations, clothing, health and healing will be discussed.  Don and Diane Kramer will share extensive knowledge of “Our Neighbors, the Amish.”  A brief intermission will allow guests to try authentic Amish treats of cookies and breads.

    The Kramers currently live near Dyersville, Iowa.  Both are retired teachers from schools in Grundy Center and Manchester.  They are enjoying a simplistic life and volunteering in their free time.  Their home is surrounded by three Amish communities.  Come join us and learn more about the humble, kind, and intriguing Amish people.

    This program is hosted by the Volunteer Millers of de Immigrant authentic Dutch windmill.  The event is free and open to the public on Sunday, April 28 at 2:00pm in the Windmill Cultural Center located at 111- 10th Avenue, Fulton, Illinois across from the windmill.  The facility is accessible to persons with disabilities.  All Miller programming is free and open to the public.
