Written by Anne Toews, Program DirectorAt the end of every summer season we have an appreciation evening for our volunteers. This year the appreciation evening will be on Thursday, October 16, 2014 at 7:00 PM in the Village Centre Auditorium. The theme chosen for this years’ event, “A Year to Celebrate,” is to coincide with our 50th anniversary celebrations. While it is important to show our appreciation and gratitude to our current roster of volunteers, it is also good to reflect on past volunteers who donated their time and talents in the last fifty years. It is our honour and privilege to highlight some of these volunteers which now include third and fourth generations of their families in a special segment of the program. If you have volunteered at Mennonite Heritage Village this season, please come join us for an evening of reflection and refreshments. Cheers, Anne
