We had a lovely visit from Mennonite Heritage Village Curator Andrea Dyck this morning... and she did not come alone. She brought with her a "to scale" model of MHV's Windmill, made by Elsie (Penner) Donaldson.
This collection of 10 model windmills was the last artifact donation of 2018. All the models are to-scale and based off of actual windmills located in places important to the history of Russian-descendant Mennonites.
What a wonderful thing that something at the MHV would inspire someone like Elsie Donaldson to create some amazing works!!
Thank you Andrea for sharing this with us and Happy 2019 to the MHV!
