Last week the early winter storm presented many problems throughout Southeastern Manitoba. Mennonite Heritage Village experienced power outages along with other areas of the province. The storm knocked out all power to the Village, disabled our phone system and littered the yard with branches. Anyone trying to call MHV last Thursday or Friday probably heard the phone ringing but didn’t get an answer. We apologize for the inconveniences our clients experienced during that time. Phone service was temporarily restored late on Friday afternoon. We now have partial service and are facing the possibility of having to replace our entire phone system. Please bear with us.
