Father’s Day Pioneer Lunch

This year, we had the pleasure of hosting NAPDA’s Father’s Day Pioneer Lunch at Old Timers Cabin and celebrating the association’s 124th anniversary. Many families from the community and NAPDA members attended and enjoyed the buffalo stew meal while conversing and listening to live music. On one side of the hall, there was a historical display of pioneer photos and documents, which attendees viewed attentively and asked questions about. In fact, NAPDA is pleased to welcome some new members who took interest in their work and joined them that day!

The event was organized by NAPDA’s social committee–Roz Ruptash, John Tansowny and Les Lutic, along with assistance from the cabin’s staff. Thank you for the efforts everyone put.

The meal was a culinary experience that included a twist on foods our forefathers would have eaten. It was catered by Elizabethan Catering Services. The menu consisted of the following:

Prairie Buffalo & Vegetable Hot Pot

(tasty, tender chunks of Buffalo, carrots, onions, celery and potatoes in a succulent gravy)

Homemade Sourdough Bannock

(a lighter, flakier, tasty adaptation of original bannock)

Roast Potato Wedges

Tossed Garden Salad with homemade Wild Saskatoon Dressing

Creamy Coleslaw

Wild berry Crumble with Fresh Whipped Cream

Tea & Coffee

The centrepieces on the tables were NAPDA’s history books, together with mason jars filled with natural, colourful flowers. These books and the historical display items introduced the association to new members and supporters.
