One of the traditions of the Russian Mennonites is a light, late-afternoon Sunday meal known as faspa. It usually consists of buns, cheese, jam, cake or cookies, and coffee. Sometimes cold cuts of meat are included as well. The MHV Auxiliary will be serving their annual “Sunday Faspa” on Sunday, May 6, at 2:30 PM in the Village Centre Auditorium. Entertainment will include presentations by our Senior Curator, Roland Sawatzky, and Val McKinley (University of Winnipeg) about the former village of Blumenhof and the findings from recent archeological digs at that site. There will also be special music by “The Reimer6.” Admission is $10.00 per person, and tickets are available at the door at MHV.
