Event Description

The Adirondack Mennonite Heritage Association and the Lewis County Historical Society are hosting a free premiere of a local history documentary at the Town Hall Theater on Saturday, August 30 at 6 p.m. The event includes the film screening, a discussion of the film, and a piano concert by a nationally renowned pianist, Jacqueline Schwab, who is known for her work on several award-winning Ken Burns documentaries. The event is free and the community is invited to attend this one-night only event.

Simple Servants: The Story of the Lewis County Mennonites tells the powerful, emotional story of area Mennonites who came to America in 1833 and settled in Northern New York to escape over 300 years of religious persecution for their faith. These Simple Servants’ story is a unifying message that exemplifies the true spirit of American freedom and what makes this country so unique. It also highlights the hard work ethic and perseverance required to survive and build a life in the harsh wilderness of Northern New York, which the Lewis County community is built upon. This is the first time the story has been told on film, and is a wonderful resource to educate and inform viewers of all ages in a stunning and informative manner.
