Hutterite school topic of March 17 60+ program

Former educator Elaine Ewert Kroeker will present ?Braids and Straw Hats: Teaching in Neuhof Hutterian Brethren School? at the 60-Plus Learning in Retirement Program at 10 a.m. Monday, March 17, in the Wohlgemuth Music Education Center at Tabor College.

Kroeker, who graduated from Tabor in 1972 with a degree in elementary education, spent a week during her senior year living in White Rock Hutterite Colony in South Dakota, which sparked her lifelong interest in the Hutterites, a communal Anabaptist group with many colonies in the north-central United States.

In recent years she taught in the Neuhof Hutterian Brethren School near Mountain Lake., Minn.

Kroeker, who lives with her husband, Wes, on a farm near Bingham Lake, Minn., has been a member of the Tabor College Board of Directors representing the Central District Mennonite Brethren churches since 2000.

Fees for the program are $3 a session or $15 per semester ($28 per couple). Registration and discount cards for lunch in the cafeteria will be available at the door during the half hour before the meeting.
