It was a great weekend. After a few sprinkles in Howe (and heavy rain west of Howe) on Friday afternoon the weather was fantastic the rest of the weekend - cool and sunny early in the day with gradually warming temperatures.

THANK YOU! to all of you who volunteered to help make Amishland 2014 possible.
