On August 23rd from 8 AM-4 PM at the Lancaster Mennonite Historical Society, go back in time when several hundred folks arrived in Lancaster County PA from Puerto Rico to work in summer harvesting of tomatoes from about 1950-64. See their early lodging places, work sites, and places of worship. Hear first person accounts of initial experiences. Discover the changes as their families arrived by both hosts and guests. Become enriched by caring, friendly folks holding roots back to Puerto Rico. A light lunch is included in the trip. Tickets available online or by calling (717) 393-9745.
