The Aylmer (Ont.) Mennonite Community Store and Mennonite Central Committee (MCC) Aylmer Resource Centre are pictured after 1989. Both represent the response of the local community, Low German Mennonites and MCC Ontario to the increase in immigration of Low German Mennonites from Latin America into southwestern Ontario, beginning in the 1970s. Both organizations have become independent and are under local control, the resource centre as Mennonite Community Services of Southern Ontario.

Call for volunteers
