“Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner” – a (dead) Mennonite Literary Society Fundraiser for Rhubarb

By Tim Brandt

Bring your favorite dead Mennonite to Life at the Publisher’s Spring Faspa Feast!

Publisher Victor Enns will host and serve at his Willow Island retreat Sunday afternoon April 23, 2017

To attend, please register asap via email ([email protected]) as space is limited to 12 – yes this is a Last Supper of sorts, but promises to be inspiring and fun.

Bring a short (max 5 minutes) story/reading about or by your favorite deceased Mennonite person and don’t tell who it is – keep us guessing for a prize donated by the host.

This fundraiser dinner/evening will take place on the shore of Lake Winnipeg near Gimli and we will coordinate ridesharing to keep it fun and economical.

We are asking $100 per person to attend – all proceeds going to sustain Rhubarb
