|This logo tells the story.
People- A family symbolic of the 1874 migration. A man with his scythe representing industry A woman with her iron or teapot and a halo--not unusual for women! The son--(Most of those who came were below 20, many of them children.)
Faith- The Centennial Memorial tells the story of anabaptist-Mennonite history--portrays Mennonite priorities "the cross over the world"-- Globe suggests the field of service and the scattered Mennonite remnants.
Religion- The church--They came in search of religious freedom and to avoid conscription. Little churches still dot the prairies and towns where Mennonites live.
