Help Us Win $10,000 Towards a Summer Kitchen

June is going to be a very lucky month for Tyrconnell Heritage Society and Backus-Page House Museum.  With your help we could win $10,000 that would be put towards a Summer Kitchen addition on the back of the museum.

Here's how you can participate: Every dollar you donate to Tyrconnell Heritage Society in June, 2015 though the Great Canadian Giving Challenge, earns us a ballot to win $10,000.  All donations must be processed online through CanadaHelps at this website. - giving made simple

For those of you who have visited, I'm sure you've noticed the white outline on the brick shown in this photo.  This is where the Page family had a wood shed and the Backus family presumably had a summer kitchen.  Adding this would increase our programming space for hands on activities as we plan to fill it with replica items that can be handled and used by visitors and staff.  We want to replicate the ovens, still in the basement of the Pearce homestead as well, for hearth cooking and baking demonstrations.

If you would like to share our project with your friends on social media, just click the buttons below for Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Pinterest, Email and more.  Remember every dollar donated in June earns us a chance to win.  Click on any link or picture in this post and it will take you to the website to donate.  Thank you so much for your donation and for sharing our goal with everyone you know.
