Make Morden the next "must" on your list!

I'm a little bit ashamed to admit it, but here's the truth: I have never been to Morden. It's not that I've never ventured into the Pembina Valley region, neither was it for a lack of trying, but for one reason or another, the desire never materialized into an actionable plan.
