  ​This year we are planning to hold our Spring gathering at Yoder’s on Saturday April 4th.


  Yoder’s is located on RTE 23 about 2 miles West of Shady Maple. It is  located off RT 23 West at the first traffic light past the intersection of RT 23 and RT 322. Get in the Left turn lane and you will see a large sign that says Yoder’s. Turn left into the parking lot. The buildings are clearly marked.  The restaurant is on the right end of the complex.
For GPS users, the address is:
                                                  14 South Tower Road
                                                  New Holland, PA 17557
  Our banquet room will be available at noon. If you have never been here before, just ask for directions to the banquet rooms. There will be a sign that says “The Rooster Net”. We have the room from noon to around 3:00pm. This should give us plenty of time to socialize.
Yoder’s offers an all-inclusive rate of $21.49 which includes the buffet, drinks, tax and gratuity. We will get separate checks. A 10% senior citizen discount is also available for $19.49 – just let the waitress know.
The room is set up to hold about 50 persons. It has six round tables with seating for about 8 persons per table. I will be attempting to get a head count from email responses to me. My email address is:
  If you would like to take home some of the Yoder’s food, it is available in the grocery store on the left side of the building. Bring a cooler. There are many Amish sites nearby. Also, on the way back you can stop at Shady Maple’s gift shop, grocery store or visit Good’s Hardware Store. Hope to see you there.

The Rooster Net’s favorite restaurant in Cocoa, Florida was closed on Saturday, May 5, 2018 after 39 years in operation.  Known as Grandpa's Steakhouse, the train car restaurant, was a famous landmark along Rt 520, about a mile east of I-95.
Please see the following newspaper article:

February 7, 2020 Rooster Net First Friday Luncheon held at the Gino’s Ristorante and Pizzeria.  Another outstanding luncheon flocking with 16 attending; of course, everyone had a great time. Jim K3CHJ presented his Consumer Tip on how to repair a shoe sole (or heel) with a product called Shoe Goo. Jim also indicated that it is much less expensive at Walmart than at Lowes.
Our next Rooster Net First Friday Luncheon is scheduled for March 6, 2020 at the same restaurant.  Enjoy and 73,   Dick K3ITH
