The Bernese Four perform at Swiss Day

"The Bernese Four" from Berne, Ind., will perform during this year's Bluffton Swiss Day program on Sunday, June 24.

A potluck, at Ebenezer Mennonite Church, 8905 Grove Road, at 12:30-3 p.m., features a musical program by Wilmer Sprunger and friends of Berne Ind., with an opening by the Bluffton-Pandora Swiss Chorus.

Bring a dish, already hot or cold and ready to serve, and your own table service (plates and silverware). Drinks will be provided.

From about 3 - 5:30 p.m., immediately following a brief annual business meeting at Ebenezer, an open house will be held at the Schumacher Historical Homestead at 8350 Bixel Road, between Bluffton and Pandora.

The Schumacher Farmstead, a restored Swiss Mennonite farm of the mid-1800s, includes a two-story farm house, bank barn, summer kitchen, historical garden and workshop. Light refreshments will be served.
