The third annual Dinner with Ted happens at the beginning of June, and no one’s looking forward to it more than the event’s namesake.
“I’m excited,” says Ted Dyck, Director of Food Services at CMU. “I’m looking forward to seeing everybody again, as well as alumni who couldn’t make it last year.”
Most of us don’t think twice about the food we eat, but Stefan Epp-Koop (CMU 2002-04) does.
As the acting executive director of Food Matters Manitoba, it’s Epp-Koop’s job to help make Manitoba a healthier place by building healthy, fair, and sustainable food systems that make food available and affordable to all.
Most people wait until after graduation to give back to their alma mater, but not Moses Falco. While he was still a student, Falco and his wife, Jessica, bought a tile in support of the Connect Campaign to fund the construction of Marpeck Commons.
When he visited CMU last September to accept a 2015 Blazer Distinguished Alumni Award, Larry Plenert (CMBC ’78) remarked how one of his professors inspired him to become a lawyer.
When Sarah Quartel and Damaris Schmucker decided to start a community choir, they hoped at least 10 people would join. Imagine their surprise when nearly 40 people registered.
“We were pretty elated,” Quartel says. “The response from the community has been so amazing and positive.”
