Invite Your Neighbor to Dinner Day
Jan. 10, Two Sisters Amish Meals, Turbotville
Susquehanna Life magazine sponsors its 6th Annual Invite Your Neighbor to Dinner Day at Two Sisters Amish Meals, in Turbotville, on Jan. 10, 2015, at 5 p.m. Enjoy a delicious, authentic Amish dinner featuring fresh roasted chicken and ham, homemade noodles, salads, vegetables and an array of homemade baked goods. The cost is $21.50 per person, including beverage, dessert and tip, and must be prepaid via credit card. Call (800) 232-1670 by Jan. 3, 2014, to reserve your space. Here’s why we celebrate: On Oct. 23, 2002, Pennsylvania passed a resolution declaring “Dinner Day” an official holiday. On the second Saturday in January, we are encouraged to invite a neighbor to dinner. Unable to join us? Ask a neighbor you’ve never met to dine with you in your home or out on the town—you’ll build a bridge to your neighbors, and help make the world a friendlier place. What a great way to start the New Year!
