The campaign to re-side and paint Stettler’s grain elevator is underway.

The campaign to re-side and paint Stettler’s grain elevator is underway.

The Stettler P&H Elevator Preservation Society kicked off the fundraising drive with a live Louisiana Hayride music impersonators show on Saturday, netting the non-profit organization about $2,000.

“Every penny helps,” said president Stan Eichhorn of the society’s efforts to match the province’s $60,000 Community Facility Enhancement Program grant for the $120,000 project.

“We’re hoping to get it done before the end of summer. It’s going take some legwork, for sure.”

Donors to the campaign can help buy siding and paint, and pay for their installation with specific donations of between $25 and $1,000. Society supporters can also help by renewing their society memberships and volunteering for elevator tours, Alberta Prairie Railway’s snack bar shifts and upcoming fundraising activities.

More information about the society and the campaign is available online at www.stettlergrainelevator.com.
