And the group's traditional clothing — plain pants, shirts, hats, dresses and bonnets — always stands out. In short, Amish country is a special place. Five different hotels will serve the conference delegates. They are the Berlin Resort, Comfort Suites Berlin and the Berlin Grande Hotel and two popular mainstays of the region, Zinck's Inn and Lodging on the Square. CONFERENCE PLANS The conference will be held in midweek this year. When they arrive, delegates are asked to register for the meeting at the Grace Mennonite Church, where they can network and begin to build new travel relation- ships. Then some of the fun begins. "On that first afternoon, we are planning to hold an old-fashioned ice cream social outdoors at the Amish and Mennonite Heritage Center in Berlin," said Judson. "It will be held next to a colorful, 296-foot-tall painted mural that depicts the story of the Amish and Mennonite people, basically depicting their very moving immigration stories." There will also be some local entertainment as attendees enjoy their ice cream. Following the official conference welcome and keynote address, every- one will be bused to the nearby town of Wilmot. Dinner will be served at the Amish Door, a restaurant, bakery, market, hotel and gift shop. The Amish Door offers traditional meat-and-potatoes cooking. Guests usually feast on specialties like roast beef or broasted chicken, as well as mashed potatoes, delectable vegetables, homemade bread and fresh pie. Several area convention and visitors bureaus will be in attendance, so delegates can obtain information should they want to bring a group back to the area.
