Savour Manitoba -- Cornell Creme

Lisa Cornell


It is Thursday. Our day to enjoy and celebrate another tasty Manitoba product. We call this Savour Manitoba. Today, Cornell Creme -- a made in Manitoba ice cream by Lisa and William Dyck of Anola.  Cornell Dairy is North of Steinbach between Beausejour and Anola. The farm was named after William's dad, Cornelius who continues help out.  They milk 120 cows every day, twice a day, 365 days a year or almost 98,000 litres per month. And when Lisa joined us this morning, she talked about the "need" for another ice cream in Manitoba.

Cornell Creme is available at select food stores and restaurants across Manitoba including Main Bread and Butter Stbh, and Rural Roots Food Cooperative Boissevain

MHV Artifact and visit from Natashia Lapiere

2014 04 communion

Earlier this morning I asked if you could tell what this MHV artifact is? One clue was that it was often used at Easter time and will be again in our church services THIS Easter. Natashia Lapiere joined us just before 8:30 this morning to reveal what the artifact is and now we know that it is the very first communion set used in the Lichtenau Church which you can see on the MHV grounds today!

Here it is from another angle -- a little easier to tell that it is a very special communion set. Which, by the way, looks very similar to the communion sets that many of our churches use today. Thank you Natashia.
