Preservings 2019 Cover

The Plett Foundation is happy to bring you the 2019 issue of Preservings! The theme for this issue is Manitoba Mennonites “on the rails,” featuring articles by James Urry, Hans Werner, and Ralph Friesen.

We are excited to announce that in 2020 we are moving to a schedule of publishing two issues per year. The annual subscription rate will not increase. Our next issue will continue with the theme of Mennonites and the railway in Mexico, Paraguay, and Russia.

If you’re on the Preservings mailing list you should have received your copy by now, but if not, let us know!

Moved recently? Don’t miss out! Remember to update us on any address changes so your magazine doesn’t join our “Returned to Sender” pile!

Please email us with any address corrections, questions, or comments about Preservings.

Happy Christmas
