Mennonites took to the streets of Aylmer to ride for what they are calling “Save Our Wareneki!” They plan to bring awareness about the continual takeover of Mennonite culture by stores that sell potato and cheese filled perogies. Peter Thiessen says, “they are destroying our culture?! We’re loosing too much of our Mennonite heritage! It’s got to stop!” So we organized the “Ride to Save Our Wareneki”. We’re going all the way from the MCC thrift shop to the Credit Union and we plan to stage a protest at city hall”!
In other news; A change of life is happening in Sturgis South Dakota. Mennonites there are giving up their Harley Davidsons and trading them in for various John Deere and other major vintage tractors. Annie Klassen, who used to own a 1200 Sportster, says “It’s time to grow up. We were all really quite childish now when I think of it. We thought we were so tough with our Harleys, tattoos and leather jackets. I even got a tattoo of Elvis in the 60s on an area of my body I won't mention. I do regret a tattoo because now "Elvis" looks more like Joe Biden with a lot of strange dimples. What can I say? We were young and foolish. Now we're older and a little less foolish. It’s time let go of the rough tough biker thing. So my oomchji and myself each bought matching 1945 model D John Deeres' and we run them at our local Mennonite museum. It’s nice because the old John Deere D makes a lot of noise. So we still feel we're kind of cool!"
