Starting in September 2009, we will be holding our Meetups in the Rohrbach Library at Kutztown University. This group is intended for people who are interested in Pennsylvania German, also known as Pennsylvania Dutch, Pennsilfaanisch Deitsch, or simply Deitsch. You need not already be a speaker of the language.

Although we all share a common interest in the language and the culture, we are a diverse group, and participants are advised that tolerance of differing belief systems and practices is paramount to the success of the group - and of the language and culture themselves!

    "l'm excited to meet others that still speak the dialect. It was the language of my home as a child and I'm very interested in keeping it alive. I'm also a woodstove cook and part time farmer."

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
