Overcast and rainy skies couldn't keep 90+ happy Hepler's from attending Don Yoders "Hepler Heritage Bus Tour". Fortunately after an early downpour, the rain held off for most of the remaining day. We travelled to Sciota, Pa, site of Christ Hamilton United Lutheran Church attended by our Scheible & Jacob Hepler ancestors. Then on to Alburtis, site of the Zion Lehigh Lutheran Church. This is a church attended by our early Wagner & Maurer ancestors. Next stop, Old Zionsville, site of the original Caspar & Susanna farm and the Zion's Lutheran Church. This is the church that Caspar helped found. Lunch was provided by the women of the church. The final stop on the tour was to Mertztown to visit the Longswamp United Church of Christ, another of our historic Hepler churches in Berks County.
