This event will be regarding Mennonites, escaping Russia on the Great Trek in 1943-44, coming into Poland, then into Germany, and then coming to Canada in 1947, 48, 49, and early 50—they’re known as the “48ers”. Every 10 years we honor what they went through with a commemorative event for this time period in Mennonite history. This year we will have a full afternoon and evening including a lecture in the afternoon, Faspa (light meal), and a celebratory stories and song night. We will also have a pop-up gallery of selected art from Ray Dirk’s exhibit: “Along the Road to Freedom”.
