THE PEROGY PINCHERS

     

The Perogy Pinchers are masters when it comes to Perogies! They meet as often as they can and have been in the community for many many years! Their perogies are legendary and continually raise funds for events by selling their masterpiece perogies by the dozens!

     

The Perogy Pinchers is a spin off the Theodore Catering Club which organized in 1992. The perogy pinchers started pinching in 2008 and to date (Nov. 7, 2016) have raised $71,800. Their main goal was to look after the upkeep of the hall alone, however, they have also have helped the Village with expenses for the arena portion as well. They have also made a large donation towards the Handivan bus for the Theodore Health Centre. They are very proud of their accomplishments and will continue as long as they can. They would like to say 'thank you' to Norman and Jeannine Thompson for allowing them to plant potatoes on their farm and to thank Richardson Pioneer for their donation of canola oil for making the perogies and supplying oil for the downstairs canteen. If you would ever want to join the ladies for an afternoon or evening of perogy making look for their regular posting in the Free Press and of course right here on the website. Perogy orders can be placed by calling Betty @ 647-2177 or Olga @ 647-2053

THE THEODORE HISTORICAL MUSEUM

     

Orignally located alongside the railroad back in the day, it has since been moved to the entrance of the village and is the local museum. The Seniors meet at the museum a couple times a month to play bingo or for a potluck supper. It's a chance to mingle and visit.

THE THEODORE FREE PRESS

     

The Theodore Free Press began with help from the Parkland College in Yorkton back in November 1980. After a few years the College stopped and the group from Theodore took it over. It's now 35 years later and the paper is still going strong with help from the volunteers and donations to keep it in print. Not bad for a village of under of 400 people! A subscription to the Free Press is $15.

     

On the day it gets put together and into print, a lot of fine tuning is done as it's compiled article by article. When it's all said and done, 1,285 copies are either delivered to the local post office or sent out to nearby communities and to various points across Canada to subscribers and even a few head south into the U.S.

     

Once the printing is done it's time to put the pages together and trust me when I say it takes a full team effort to get it done! The volunteers begin around 8am and could run as late as 5 - 6pm depending on the size of the issue. With more help it takes less time. The paper gets pieced together on the 1st week of the month so maybe perhaps if you'd like to lend a hand one of these times, even if it's for 30 min., let Betty know @ (306)647-2177
