-A A +A

Phyllis Johnson of Harriman, accompanied by the Roane County News, took a trip to Amish country in Holmes County, Ohio, while visiting with her sister.

The Roane County travelers accompanied Johnson’s sister Jean, nieces Linda, Jane and Vicki, great-niece Chloe and friends Lori, M.J. and Lydia to several shops, and they saw a number of horse-drawn carriages and had lunch prepared by Amish cooks.

The sisters also visited a candle-making factory and gift shop, and Johnson ended her visit with the Bratwurst Festival Parade in Bucyrus, Ohio, where she watched the Galion Tigerettes Baton Corps twirl under the direction of her niece, Vicki.
