Mennofolk Manitoba announces “Show and Tell” theme for 2020

WINNIPEG—Mennofolk Manitoba, the annual event celebrating music and art from the keystone province’s Mennonite community, has announced the theme for its 2020 event: “Show and Tell.” Organizers are asking people who are interested in participating in the art show to submit their elementary school art projects, first attempts at poetry, childhood drawings “and whatever else you can dig up from the archives,” according to a Facebook post.
