On November 8, 2010, the Manitoba Mennonite Historical Society (MMHS) will release a calendar depicting scenes from Mennonite life in the prairie region ca. 1910-1950. The calendar continues the society’s commitment to fostering interest in Mennonite heritage and the exploration of past and present Mennonite experience. The MMHS 2011 Calendar draws out rare images from the collections at the Centre for Mennonite Brethren Studies and the Mennonite Heritage Centre Archives, both located in Winnipeg. In addition to featured archival images, the wall calendar includes historic “Dates to Remember” as well as details about the MMHS and “Upcoming Events” in the Mennonite calendar.
The MMHS hopes that this project will not only provide a compelling historic backdrop to monthly activities, but that it will also create an awareness of the society. The society is run by volunteers and welcomes those with an interest in Mennonite history to become involved.
The MMHS 2011 Calendar will be available from the Society at 1310 Taylor ave. Winnipeg, or the Mennonite Heritage Centre 600 Shaftesbury Blvd. and will sell for $7 each.
