Kindertag

The American Historical Society of Germans from Russia is hosting their International Convention July 30 through August 2, 2018. You can find convention and registration information at AHSGR.org.

In association with the AHSGR and our local AHSGR Sunflower chapter, Ellis County Historical Society is hosting a Kindertag, a Youth Day that will focus on German traditions. Children ages 5-14 are invited to spend August 1 with us at ECHS to learn about German music, dance, and games; folktales and German words; daily life for the early Volga German settlers in Ellis and Rush counties; and German recipes. Many hands-on activities will give the participants experience, including making and eating grebble!
