The executive secretary for the Manitoba Mennonite Centennial Celebrations was Lawrence Klippenstein. The steering committee included Gerhard Lohrenz, Elmer Hildebrand, Frank Brown, J.J. Reimer, Ted Friesen, Gerhard Ens and P.J.B. Reimer. The committee encouraged communities to plan their own celebrations and was not directly involved in all of them. Many events were planned including displays, dramas, choir festivals and publications.
