I got a wonderful surprise at my family Christmas dinner when my dad gave me this key tag his father, Owen got from Menno Martin in the 1950’s when he renovated their family farm kitchen. Menno went on to build their new house when they moved into town from the farm in the mid 1960’s.
I remember Menno Martin telling me that my maternal grandfather, Enoch worked with him for a short time back in the 1930’s before Enoch started his career at Home Hardware 1936.
Menno also told me on a little road trip I took with him one afternoon that he built the farm house I grew up in just outside of Floradale.
It seems my connections to Menno Martin Contractor run very deep. It is funny how life comes around as now I’m co-owner of the company.
