Yes, that’s right. The very first shuttle service which took passengers all the way from downtown Steinbach to the brand new Clearspring Shopping Mall, began service on April 30th 1980! Passengers aboard the British Route Master could enjoy a scenic view along the way. You’d pass the sights of Stony Brook, Jakes Husky and some of the last prairie grasses around Steinbach that would eventually turn their sod over to pavement in the next 35 years. The prairie grasses are long gone, as is the British double decker bus that once whisked eager shoppers to the new Utopian shopping experience...

"It is now seven score and eight years ago, since our forefathers brought about in the new province of Manitoba...a place that would become Steinbach...... and the notion that not all forma worscht is created equal, but for the pursuit that is the inherent right of every man and woman..... to enjoy kielke with forma worscht and schmaunt-fat for all". Abraham Leoppky, the Strassburg address. 2024 will mark Steinbach’s 150th Anniversary! Celebrate your Mennonite connections with this one of a kind Birthday card.
Although I'm somewhat biased because I think there's a lot of great Penners out there (my opinion, just saying) but I think Mount Rusmore could use a more modern refit. What do you think? Click on the image below to see more fun "Penner humor" items!
Ah yes, who could forget Steinbach’s famous yearly free pancake breakfast?!,…and waiting in line for hours!? I heard that they only served pancakes (no sausage, no bacon, no worscht) Notice the magic Menno word FREE :-) Do they still do this in Steinbach?
