    Description

    We have enjoyed having several wonderful people in our home from many different countries.
    Our family at home now consists of Myself, Rosemary, my husband,Gerald, and our children, Spencer (20 and attending college)and Bryce (18). Our other children are grown.

    From June - September we travel to the province of Manitoba where we have a mixed farm. We will need help on the farm with haying, grain production, animal care, gardening, building maintenance and or cooking and cleaning. This summer we hope to do some renovations and install weeping tile and a waterproof membrane around the outside of our 100+ year old farmhouse. In the evening we like to go to a beach that is close by to cool off and relax after our days's work or on the weekends.
    Manitoba has many lakes, but we also have what we call "Spirit Sands" a desert-like area not too far from our home.
    There is Riding Mountain National Park about 45 minutes from our farm where you can hike, swim, rent bicycles, boats or take a guided tour on a dinner cruise. Winnipeg is just over 2 hours away and holds a Folk Festival in the summer every year that is very "International". There are a variety of Fairs and Music Festivals in many close towns.
