Board members and volunteers of the Teulon and District Museum held a fundraising barbecue in front of museum buildings at the Esso station at No. 7 highway from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on July 26.

Volunteers in purple shirts, Amy Dellebuur and Maureen Stutsky put guests’ hamburgers and hot dogs in their buns, while Ed Helwer and Brian Jack barbequed.

Turnout had been good despite bouts of rain and wind and another barbecue being held in town. “About 100 hamburgers and four pounds of hot dogs,” had been sold, said Dellebuur. “Everything goes to the museum for maintenance, upkeep, painting or whatever we have to do.”

Kathryn Jacks, the museum chairperson, was on hand in her purple shirt to assist as were other volunteers selling tickets and handing out ice cold drinks. Everyone was enjoying the food and the company despite high winds. Another barbecue is planned for next month.

“We have another one (fundraiser barbecue) on the 4thFriday of August,” Dellebuur said. “If it’s nice in September, we’ll have one then too.”

The Teulon and District Museum highlights the town’s history. Teulon is known as the “Gateway to the Interlake” and takes its name from the maiden name of Charles C. Castle’s wife. Castle was one of Teulon’s founders.

Along with a monument commemorating the original pioneers of the area, the museum also features the home of a longstanding physician, Alexander J. Hunter and St. Mary’s Catholic Church and other buildings.

Come out to Teulon to see an authentic Ukrainian log house, a railway caboose, a cobblers’ shop and a machine shed. This trip through the buildings of the past will give you an appreciation for a prairie pioneer’s daily life.
