You’ve been waiting for it all year and here it is. Humenik Funeral Chapel proudly presents the 2016 Amish Tour. We’ll be departing from the Humenik parking lot at 8 AM, on Thursday October 20th. Our first stop will be the Amish Flea Market in Walnut Creek, OH. Be sure to wear your shopping shoes. Following the flea market, we’ll board our coach for the Dutch Valley Restaurant in Sugarcreek for a fabulous family style Amish meal. You’ll have your choice of meatloaf, baked chicken, or ham with a tossed salad, mashed potatoes and gravy, dressing, noodles, green beans, dinner rolls, and assorted pies. After browsing the shops at Dutch Valley we’ll head to the Hillcrest Apple Orchard where you’ll be able to hand pick a bag of apples and stock up on fresh apple cider. Our next stop is the Der Dutchman Bakery in Walnut Creek. Don’t stop with the mouth-watering pies, rolls and pastries. You can further satisfy your sweet tooth with a stroll to Coblentz Chocolates. There will also be time available to shop at Carlisle Gifts and the visit the German Culture Museum across the street. The grand finale of our tour will be a stop at the Walnut Creek Cheese shopping complex. Don’t let the name fool you, there’s more than cheese at this everything Amish superstore. With your shopping bags filled to the brim, and your belly full of the finest comfort food around, we’ll head for home and return to the Humenik parking lot by 7:00 PM. Please park your cars at the CVS end of the parking lot to accommodate the arrival of the motor coach. Cost of the trip is $55 per person. Looking forward to seeing you. Happy trails ahead!

So many times when a death occurs, people don’t know where to begin personalizing their loved one’s funeral. Everything from family photos, home movies, favorite sports team memorabilia, fishing rods, golf clubs and bowling balls are a part of what makes your loved one the unique individual they were and always will be. Often, people want to get rid of the reminders of their departed family members. We encourage you to not only bring those items to the funeral home to be put on display, but to keep them in a special place in your homes going forward. A life lasts only so long, but memories can live on forever.


Tired of the same old, same old when it comes to Christmas. Yes, there’s much to be said for tradition, but sometimes you’ve got to branch out to make new memories, and start new traditions. We’re still looking for a new Christmas Lights tour destination for this coming December. If you have any suggestions for someplace new we’d be glad to hear it. Drop your ideas in the mail with the form above and we’ll take it from there. Many of the drive-thru lighting displays we’ve researched thus far don’t look very exciting. So we may be taking the plunge and heading for an outdoor walking tour. Be sure to look for next month’s newsletter and join us as we step out of the old and into the new.
