Mennonite Heritage Village (MHV) held the draw for the “Choose Your Own Adventure” raffle on Saturday, December 1st – picking a woman from Ste. Anne, Manitoba as the lucky winner.

MHV said that the winner, Fran, along with her husband, debated over the five trip options and have settled on Ireland as their destination of choice. “I walked past the sign on a visit to the museum, noticed it, thought Ireland would be nice, but I won’t win,” said Fran. “Once I arrived home, I kicked myself for not buying a ticket. Two days later, with no other reason to come to Steinbach, I came back to purchase my ticket.”

The Ireland Adventure will include a six night getaway to Dublin, Ennis and Killarney, with an overnight stay in a historic castle, a VIP tour of the Guinness Storehouse, Island excursions to the Gap of Dunloe and Aran – a travel experience valued at $12,750.

MHV notes that a new raffle is in the works for 2019.

Mennonite Heritage Village is hosting the Choose Your Own Adventure raffle as a fundraising event to be able to continue to preserve and exhibit the history and stories of the Russian Mennonites as well as the history of Steinbach.
