Mennonite Barn Quilt Trail funded in Elgin County

The Aylmer News reported April 1st that a barn quilt trail would be funded as part of a Mennonnite project  in the Aylmer area.  Congratulations!  We can’t think of anything finer than barn quilts going on Mennonnite barns with the quilts to match!

AYLMER – MPP Steve Peters was at the Mennonite Central Committee office  in Aylmer yesterday to make these funding presentations:  Mennonite Central Committee received a $116,200 grant to assist its radio station operations and for promotion of a barn-quilt cultural tour through East Elgin; $50.000 went to Peacekeeper Park at Lake Whittaker to install activity challenge equipment; and $28, 500 went to the Aylmer Columbus Club for building renovations.



Barn Quilt Video- Wardsville

Crocodile Productions, Barbara Urbach and Gary VanOsch, created a unique barn quilt video for the Ontario Barn Quilt Trail. Their new home in Wardsville, “the old Community Hall”, is proving to be a great working space for this creative and ingenious couple.

Check out their website. They have other videos and do unique wedding videos. Thankyou Barb and Gary for moving to Wardsville and saving the old community hall and using it for what it was intended.
