Libby Amish demonstrate a bit of slow in our mad rush
Looking for a little something different to do during the Victoria Day long weekend and you’re thinking of heading south to the United States?
Each third Saturday in May, the Libby Amish Community brings hundreds together in a full, exciting, family-oriented day. Their theme is ‘sharing community,’ in a culture of so much social breakdown.
The Libby Amish demonstrate a little bit of ‘slow’ in the midst of the mad rush of our times with the handmade and the handcrafted. They show that a traditional auction is a great way to not only get a deal, but enjoy the community of others, over good, healthy, home cooked food by the Amish ladies.
Look for: Log homes/ cabins/pavilions from Meadowlark Log Homes; handcrafts – quilts – handmade furniture from the Eagle Valley Libby Amish Community and communities nationally.
There will be an Amish-style BBQ meal and dessert from the members of the community and the Farm to Market Store and Bakery.
The event is held at: 50 Meadowlark Lane Libby, Montana on Farm to Market Road – half a mile south of Libby Airport.
Libby is located in northwestern Montana where the Cabinet Wilderness Mountains tower above the Kootenai River. The area includes the Kootenai National Forest with pristine lakes, rivers and mountain trails. Rivers, streams and Lake Koocanusa are filled with native fish. Hiking trails wander through 1,400 miles of huckleberry-laden hills with breathtaking views of the Cabinet peaks and the long, sparkling Lake Koocanusa, which reaches clear into Canada.
