Kleinburg, Vaughan, Canada, September 09, 2006 --(PR.com
)-- Binder Twine was inspired by an annual event that took place in the late 1800’s. In those days, farmers would come to Kleinburg in the fall to purchase twine from Charlie Shaw’s hardware store. When Charlie began offering them food and entertainment every year, the annual celebration was born.
Reminiscent of this, the Doctor’s House would like to offer some dishes using locally grown produce just for Binder Twine. The long term plan is to develop some typically Canadian dishes that will in some small way contribute to the promotion of Canadian cuisine and therefore, the strengthening of the Canadian identity. It is through the preservation of our heritage that we can continue to celebrate the past. However, it is through promoting our unique identity that we can continue to emphasize the importance of connecting with our roots.
During Binder Twine, there is a very special spirit of cooperation and celebration – “a community brought together with a common goal”. The Doctor’s House would like to be a part of this.
The Doctor’s house is one of the oldest residences in Kleinburg, dating back to 1867, Canada’s Confederation year. A major rebuilding and expansion program was completed in the spring of 1994. Luckily, it was so successful that the past can still be remembered and celebrated within its walls – on Binder Twine day and throughout the year.
