Museum hosts pancake breakfast and garage sale

The Stettler Town and Country Museum hosted its annual pancake breakfast, along with a garage sale on Saturday, June 4 to raise funds.

The Stettler Town and Country Museum hosted its annual pancake breakfast, along with a garage sale on Saturday, June 4 to raise funds.

Held on the first Saturday of the month of June, the pancake breakfast has become quite a tradition for the Stettler community to be a part of.

“I have been involved with it for 11 years now,” said manager Karen Wahlund. “The garage sale has been a separate annual event for many years as well, earlier it would be held in April but now for the past two years we have combined it together hoping there will be no snow in June.”

According to Wahlund, Saturday was a great day for people to come out and have a family outing at the museum.

“We couldn’t have asked for a better day this year,” added Wahlund. “We served 133 plates of pancakes, ham, sausage, eggs, cantaloupe, strawberries, watermelon and grapes.”

The garage sale also had people rummaging through many of the items, which have been donated by supporters of the museum.

Wahlund said that the sale was busy, too with many items being purchased.

“Many people seemed to enjoy the combination of breakfast and sale, and they also got a chance to look around the museum,” continued Wahlund. “But, we couldn’t have pulled either of these events off without our awesome smiling volunteers.”

With the museum having 26 buildings to maintain, 11 of which are historical in nature, these older structure require a little more maintenance and have to be taken care of more cautiously than the newer ones said Wahlund.

“The funds we raise from these events go directly into the upkeep of all of this,” she added. “Fundraisers are very important to the museum’s success.”

The grounds are maintained by volunteers, but funding is used to maintain the much-needed equipment in operational order.
