Together with the Menno Simons Centre Alumni Committee, the PGIMF Social Committee is coordinating an informal afternoon celebration and tea on March 14th, 2020 to remember the many faces who have passed through the doors of the Menno Simons Centre as student residents, as residence coordinators, and a church attenders and members.
With a brief time of worship and singing, there will be some remembrances of the many residence coordinators, time for stories and speeches, a memory board or wall, and a public time to recognize the key people who envisioned the Menno Simons Cnetre and kept it going for so many years.
