Audio Excerpt

I scream, you scream, we all scream for…. For….. well come on guys what do we all scream for!? 

 

Ice cream of course!  If you're looking for a cream run, you won’t have to run far as The Ice Cream hub is right off the highway! Just look to the south and take the 617 exit!

 

How about a trip down memory lane to go along with your ice cream? Some of the er, older and wiser listeners will surely remember the Canadian lumber chain, Beaver Lumber.  The first Beaver Lumber store was opened right here in Wolseley.. Wait a second.... wow... I got so carried away with ice cream I forgot to tell you where we are! Well welcome to Wolseley! Home of the first Beaver Lumber… and most importantly, ice cream! 

 

When do you think the first ice cream sho.... I mean the first Beaver Lumber, was built? Was it,

 

  1. 1978

  2. 1940, or

  3. 1883?

 

The answer is c! The first Beaver Lumber store opened in Canada right here in 1883, followed by another 137 locations across Canada!  The Wolseley location was sold to the Wolseley Museum Association in 1980, but remains open as a Home Building Centre!
