‘Let Teresa’s Catering Cook Easter Dinner’ will help to raise funds for the P&H Preservation Society

A fundraiser for the P&H Elevator is set to be held with the help of Teresa’s Catering.

‘Let Teresa’s Catering Cook Easter Dinner’ will help to raise funds for the P&H Elevator Preservation Society, in a year where all of the organization’s regular fundraisers have had to be cancelled due to the ongoing pandemic.

Folks are encouraged to order their favourite meals from the wide range of choices and sizes to fit their needs.

Orders must be in by March 13th, with cheques payable to P&H Elevator Preservation Society or credit card numbers on the order sheets.

Frozen meal orders will be available to be picked up at Teresa’s Catering office (4915 – 51st St.) on Saturday, March 27th from noon until 3 p.m. Coffee will also be served on the street as well!

It’s indeed been a tough year for local groups and organizations when it comes to fundraising efforts, what with the ongoing COVID-19 restrictions.

“We just decided that because we couldn’t do any of the normal fundraisers, that we would try something new,” said Verna Rock, a committee member. “Teresa’s Catering has been doing this for schools, so she offered it to us – so we are going to try it,” she said.

Main dishes run the gamut from roast beef and gravy meals, turkey dinner meals, pulled pork and seafood lasagna to butter chicken, cabbage rolls and the sweet and sour meatballs meal – just to name a few of the choices available.

There are tasty sides orders and soups available as well.

Order forms are available from members of the P&H Elevator Preservation Society, Teresa’s Catering or the P&H web site as well. They can also be picked up at the office of the Stettler Independent.

The elevator itself, which is in amazing condition thanks to the dedicated efforts of members of the P&H Elevator Preservation Society, closed back in 2003.

“P and H ran it, and they had run it since 1920,” said Stan Eichhorn of the Society.

In 2004, there were discussions about demolishing it.

At that point Eichhorn, who has a strong passion for helping to preserve local history, obtained the elevator, and in 2005, the P&H Elevator Preservation Society was launched.

Years back, there would have been at least six elevators standing in the Stettler community. Essentially, they were built about eight miles from each other down the track across the region.

Meanwhile, Eichhorn said the mandate of the Society is to preserve the heritage of the elevator and elements of the history of grain growing agriculture in the area.

Again, for more information about the Stettler P&H Elevator Fundraiser, you can call Stan at 403-740-4799, Verna at 403-740-5201 or Linda at 403-575-7139.
