Curator for the Mennonite Heritage Village stopped by the AM1250 Studio this morning to update us on the project of re-thatching the roof of the Waldheim house. What an exciting thing to get to see history come to life. The thatcher will be starting his work, weather permitting, mid-June and it will take between 3 and 4 weeks to get it done. Plenty of opportunity to watch it happen!!

Judd (right) harvested every reed by hand and there were enough bales to fill over one full semi-trailer!! Incredible. Listen to Andrea tell AM1250's Michelle Sawatzky all about the project in the AM1250 Audio Vault. is Steinbach's only source for community news and information such as weather and classifieds.
