There are times when it becomes obvious to me that some individuals do not understand what’s involved in the operation of a museum like Mennonite Heritage Village.
Earlier this year, Becky Kornelson told me about the diaries and letters that her late father, Almon Reimer, left for their family to read.
More than 4,000 guests attended Steinbach’s Canada Day celebrations at Mennonite Heritage Village (MHV) on Sunday, July 1.
The Manitoba Food History Project food truck has been parked in the Mennonite Heritage Village parking lot for over a week now, and will be there until July 7.
How does one manage when there is too much to do, especially when the “maintenance” items on the list are quite important and the “projects” are of high value? Strategic priority management, cooperation and diplomacy are helpful, perhaps even essential.
We aren’t often invited to enter a food truck, tell stories and prepare one of our favourite old recipes. Normally we purchase food from the proprietor of such a venue.
Every now and then, we at Mennonite Heritage Village feel sorry for ourselves. Actually, we have a lot to be thankful for and few reasons to feel that way.
An exhibit like The Art of Mennonite Clocks, currently on display in our Gerhard Ens Gallery, doesn’t happen without a lot of cooperation.
“I have good news and bad news,” was what the late Arthur Kroeger said to me on the phone in June of 2013. The good news was that he had managed to repair my clock, but the bad news was that it was not a Kroeger clock.
