Biographical history

Sunnyside was the name originally applied to the Dugald area as it was the name of the first post office in what is now the village of Dugald, located in the Rural Municipality of Springfield; as the village grew it became known as North Plympton (and then later as Dugald). The Sunnyside name then came to be identified with the Oakbank area, ca.1880; Dugald Presbyterian was originally known as North Plympton Presbyterian Church. North Plympton was part of the Millbrook Group of Stations, along with South Plympton, Millbrook and Richland. Rev. J. Hamilton was the first Presbyterian minister for this field. Presbyterians in the area began to plan for a church in 1887 and Dr. King of Manitoba College dedicated it in 1889. This church was also used by the Methodists and a Union Sunday School. When the name of the community was changed to Dugald around 1900, the name of the church also changed. In 1909 one hundred books were donated to the Presbyterian Church and became the foundation for a lending library. Dugald and Oakbank united in one field in 1911. In 1914 a basement was added to the church building but water was always a problem in spring and resulted in the loss of many early records. In 1923, when the Methodist Church was closed, the Methodists and Presbyterians entered into Local Union which was formalized in 1925 when the name was changed to Dugald United Church.
