CMBS offers second historical tour

Due to the overwhelming response to the Tabor College Center for Mennonite Brethren Studies? Mennonite Historical Tour, scheduled for May 25 to June 9 through Poland and Ukraine, a second tour has been scheduled and will be leaving a week later, on June 2, with an identical itinerary.

?The tour is remarkable in that it combines two trips in one, moving through two countries of Mennonite significance, replicating ?the Mennonite trek,? as it were, from Poland (formerly known as Prussia) on into the Ukraine (formerly known as Russia),? said Peggy Goertzen, CMBS director.

The tours are planned in conjunction with the Tabor College centennial celebration and will be led by two authoritative Mennonite guides: Peter J. Klassen, a specialist in Reforma?tion history who has studied the Mennonite story in Poland and Prussia; and Alan Peters, a Tabor graduate and expert in Mennonite genealogy, who will lead the Ukraine portion of the trip.

The approximate cost for the 16-day trip is $4,200 per person. The price includes airfare to and from Chicago O?Hare airport, flights from Warsaw to Kiev, as well as two internal flights in Ukraine, two meals per day, and gratuities for bus drivers and guides.

The second tour is only partially filled at this point, but anyone interested in making the trip is encouraged to send a deposit of $400 ($100 non-refundable) as soon as possible.

Checks can be mailed to Tabor College, Advancement Department, 400 S. Jefferson, Hillsboro, KS 67063.
