tin­guished PA Dutch ci­ti­zens all left an amaz­ing legacy as they re­counted the life of Rhinelanders who came to Amer­ica to im­part their hu­man eth­nic­ity and be­lief in God and Coun­try. Lester Breininger also be­came a close per­sonal friend of the Di­rec­tor of the Amer­i­can Folk­life In­sti­tute, Richard Shaner, who most loyal read­ers know was a very good friend of Al­fred L. Shoe­maker who men­tored Mr. Shaner. Dick and Lester would be part of the Amer­i­can Folk­life So­ci­ety board in 1972, and Lester was al­ways very proud of be­ing a PA Dutch­man, and his eth­nic­ity was ap­par­ent in ev­ery task he un­der­took but ut­most in his mind was his be­lief and pride in God and Coun­try.
