Mennonite Church Region I Slide Set: Western Ontario Conference

Classification scheme: 
Hist. Mss. 10.2

6 sleeves containing 102 35mm colour slides. Included is a typed script to be used with the slide set describing the congregations of the Western Ontario Mennonite Conference. The set and script were produced in 1974; many of the original slides in the set were returned to the congregations, thus the set is incomplete. In Oct. 1987 Fred Lichti produced an audio cassette to be used with the slides that remained. This was used at the time the Western Ontario Mennonite Conference final celebration at East Zorra Mennonite Church, Nov. 8, 1987. (The Western Ontario Mennonite Conference integrated into the newly formed Mennonite Conference of Eastern Canada at this time.

The slides and script were donated to the Archives in 1976 by Newton Gingrich. The cassette was donated in 1987.
