Troyer, Mullet to speak on Amish traditions at BRCC Feb. 20

Matt Troyer and Gary Mullet, both of Landrum, will speak about the Amish history, culture and faith on Monday, Feb. 20 at Blue Ridge Community College in Hendersonville, N.C.
The beliefs, traditions and lifestyle of the Amish people are often both fascinating and baffling to those who live outside their communities. In a modern society of fast-paced technology and travel, the Amish lifestyle is characterized by strict adherence to tradition and resistance to change; they function without the modern ‘necessities,’ such as computers, televisions, cell phones and automobiles.
Troyer and Mullet were both raised in Amish homes in Holmes, Ohio. They will present a video and answer questions from the audience.
