MAPLE VIEW MENNONITE MEETING HOUSE (CHURCH) OUTHOUSE
I took one of the ladies hankies as you can see. After I got home, I thought that was stealing and called Jean telling her what I did and asked her if I should take it back or send them some money for it. Jean told me that I didn't do anything wrong - that's what they are there for. It is a gift from the Mennonites to those that use their restroom. It's their way of letting people know that God cares and so do they. She said if you go into their Old Order Mennonite Meeting House outhouse, you will find them in there. I did correctly in taking only one. Seeing I collect hankies, Jean said if I really want to thank them - the next time I go out that way, take one of my hankies and leave it where you wash your hands.
The hankie is not handmade, but I still like it very much. To me that is a very special hankie for my collection and I will take one out there, the next time I go.
So I thought you might enjoy seeing what a Mennonite Meeting House Outhouse looks like.
