Chalk Talk

chalktalk1Engage your senses through music, storytelling, and the amazing chalk artistry of a former Old Order Mennonite woman, Elva Hurst, who offer insights into Plain culture with a story that comes to life (and lights up) before your eyes!

From a blank canvas, a work of art is created with masterful strokes of colored chalk as the emotional story remarkably unfolds. And, this one-of-a-kind creation is awarded to your group as an unforgettable remembrance of your experience.

chalktalk2Choose from several different themes:

  • Faith & Forgiveness – A Plain & Fancy original! – a truly moving piece delving into the power of faith and forgiveness as it pertains to the Plain People of Lancaster County, PA.
  • Memories of a Great Nation – relive the unforgettable era of WWII, and become inspired by the true meaning of “God and Country”.
  • Our Great American Songs – explore the history and inspiring stories behind America’s most treasured songs.
  • Farm Memories – enjoy the sights, sounds, memories, and life lessons learned on the dairy farm of Elva’s upbringing.
  • Faith & Thanksgiving – hear from the journals of Christopher Columbus and others as the vivid details of the Mayflower voyage and the beginnings of a new nation come to life!
  • Oh Christmas tree – discover the origin of the traditional lighted Christmas tree, and listen to the eloquence of past presidents, addressing our nation through the years, on this special day.

These uplifting, moving and thoroughly entertaining experiences offer the perfect complement to the delicious Amish Dinner at Plain & Fancy Farm.
