Volunteer Highlight: Mark & Evelyn Michener

When Evelyn and Mark Michener moved to Moose Jaw from a small town in Ontario, they were looking for a way to contribute to their new community. They found the WDM’s website and reached out to learn more about volunteering. What interested them about the WDM Moose Jaw was that, “It gave us an opportunity to couple our appreciation for history and our ability to be more involved especially in our retirement years.”

Since starting to volunteer a couple of years ago, the Micheners have enjoyed helping with the A Christmas Long Ago school program, 2nd Annual Every Child Matters Traditional Pow Wow and Gathering, Halloween and Heritage Day. Mark also has a lifelong interest in Canadian railways and steam engines so the WDM Moose Jaw is a great fit. In 2023, Mark enrolled in the Steam Traction Engine Operation Course held at the WDM Moose Jaw. This was his first step towards becoming part of the crew that runs the K+S Potash Canada Short Line 101.

Evelyn and Mark told us that “It is a good feeling to be involved in an important aspect of sharing this country’s past and being in contact with the people who come to experience history.”

Thanks to Evelyn and Mark for choosing to volunteer and support the WDM!
