October       21         Harvestfest

The Central Oklahoma Chapter of Germans from Russia will host their Annual Harvest Fest Luncheon and program on Saturday, October 21.  It will be held at Our Lord’s Lutheran Church, 2901 W Hefner Rd in NW Oklahoma City.  Please join us at 12:30 pm with the luncheon beginning at 1:00 pm.   

The Harvest Fest is a fundraiser and is open to the public.  The meal will be $12 and includes sausage and kraut, bierocks (a bread pocket of meat, onion, & kraut), German potato salad, kuchen, and homemade root beer.  We will also be showing Gutes Essen: Good Eating in German-Russian Country, a documentary of an award-winning Germans from Russia series.

Celebrate with us our cultural heritage as we are reminded how truly grateful we are that God led our ancestors to this country.  In Russia, they would gather in the village square to visit and celebrate the bounties of harvest with a festival.  For more information, please call Ladonna Hunt (405) 245-0175 or Anna Thompson (405) 306-4434.
