The CP Holiday Train will be in our area on Monday and Tuesday, December 15 and 16.. . .
The train is North America's longest rolling food bank fundraiser, having raised close to $9.5 million and 3.3 million pounds of food since it started in 1999. Over the three weeks of the program, musicians will play more than 150 concerts from a boxcar turned into a travelling stage.
Please help the Kicker give gifts to all 100 children during this year’s 17th annual Christmas colouring contest. We are accepting cash donations and gifts. Please email or call if you are able to help. email@example.com – 250-955-0534. Thank you for your contribution to this wonderful event that the children look forward to every year!
