When will the Snowman Melt?!?

Congratulations to Kathy Derksen! She had picked May 1st for the snowman to melt, and that is when it happened! She will be enjoying two season passes to the Youth Farm Corn Maze. Thank you to everyone who participated in the contest. See below for the progress of the snowman from start to finish.

 

How much has the snowman melted!

We built a 20 foot Snowman on April 13!  We could not believe how much snow we still had so we knew that something had to be done.  Jacob and Mark have been in Mexico building houses for the last number of years. Easter Monday is the day concrete forms are built so that the slab can be poured.  This Easter Monday, plywood forms were used to pour in the white stuff so a snow man could be built.

We also made a sign to honour the superb staff at the Mennonite Nursing Home!!  They are doing an amazing job during this COVID-19 crisis - keep them in your thoughts in prayers!
