George Wiebe conducts the Canadian Mennonite Bible College (CMBC) choir in an impromptu song on a B.C. ferry while on tour in May 1966. The choir gave 24 performances in 17 days, and 39 of the 43 singers also spoke at these events. The tour was an important community-building event for the choir members, but also for the school and supporting congregations. In spite of a minor vehicle accident, all had an enjoyable time. Photographer Rudy Regehr donated his photos to the Mennonite Heritage Centre, Winnipeg, and with the help of an index, information about this photo comes from a report in the July 5, 1966, issue of The Canadian Mennonite. Archives provide many tools and resources that help us understand past events.
