Follow-Up and Donation.

On April 29th, MFWD received a wonderful invitation to attend the dress rehearsal at the Glesby Centre in Portage la Prairie to see a play written and produced by Terri Todd, titled “Sleeping with a One-Armed Man”.  Terri thought there might be around 35 people might show up. Well she was a little off on that number – it was a full house!

The play was one of the best short plays I’ve seen in a long time. The stellar cast of Christopher Kitchen, Laurel Giesbrecht, Vicki Hooke, Rosa Rawlings ....... read more

 

The purchase of a building!

The Board of Directors took the great opportunity to purchase the building at 128 Gladys Street in September of 2010, for $40,000. We are now in the process of renovating the building into a health and safety centre. This centre will open a new path for MFWD to present our programs throughout the year at the facility. We will still travel to various communities and events, but with a greater strength of having a home base. The facility can provide seminars, and workshops on agricultural needs of the farmer. Local business and manufacturers can bring special speakers to the centre to encourage a greater connection with the farmer. We can hold support group meetings and social events to help injured and disabled farmers meet with others going through the same experience. It will be the home for MFWD staff and be a active people place! Click Here to read the Media Release. To the right are some pre-renovation pictures of the building. We will post more pictures as the renovation progresses. Click a thumbnail to see the full-sized image.

The Building Campaign!

The Building Campaign has a proposed budget of $288,000 and was passed by the members of MFWD at the Annual General Meeting on March 26, 2011. This budget will cover expenses for all electrical, heating and building renovations. Our hope is that funding will also come in to pay off the mortgage. The Building Campaign is set up to receive donations online or by mail.
