125th Anniversary of the West Reserve (1875-2000)


Congratulations to our neighbours in the West Reserve, Altona Winkler area, as they are celebrating their 125th anniversary this summer.

We particularly congratulate the members and descendants of the Old Kolony (OK) congregations of Manitoba, and indeed across Canada, the U. S.A., and Latin American, on the occasion of the 125th anniversary of the founding of their Gemeinde by Aeltester Johann Wiebe (1837- 1905), Rosengart, W. R., Manitoba, in 1875. By 1900 the OK community in Altona Winkler was considered one of the wealthiest in Manitoba.
