We have seen a number of staff changes in recent weeks, many relating to the return of students to school. Shadi Bleiken, Markus Goertzen, Devon Guenther and Angela Neufeld have all completed their work at MHV for this summer and are heading back to post-secondary institutions. We have appreciated and enjoyed their contributions to our work and our workplace.

We also said farewell to Office Manager Marigold Peters, who has moved on to pursue other interests. We will miss her energy, her knowledge and her servant leadership. Roxanna Martens has joined our team to fill some of the gaps Marigold’s departure creates. We wish Marigold much success in her future pursuits and welcome Roxanna to MHV. Also joining us is Peter Penner, who will work on our Facilities team for the last two months of the season to help prepare the grounds and the village for winter.
