The CP Rail Holiday Train to support food banks rolls into Salmon Arm near the Lordco parking lot next Wednesday, Dec. 16 at 7:30 p.m.

Dress warmly and take a donation of cash or food and enjoy this popular Christmas event.

The holiday train provides great entertainment for the whole family and is a reminder that not everyone has the resources to celebrate Christmas.

Again this year, the Holiday Train program is encouraging people to take heart-healthy donations.

Heart-health education and awareness is a tenet of CP’s community investment program, CP Has Heart, which focuses on improving the heart health of men, women and children in communities across North America.

This year, entertainment will be provided by Jim Cuddy, of Blue Rodeo fame, Devin Cuddy and  Kelly Prescott.

Local Holiday Train organizer Chris Moore says members of the Salmon Arm Masonic Lodge will be serving hotdogs and warm drinks, donated by local businesses.

“There will be burn barrels to keep warm around and carol signing to warm your heart,” says Moore. “And Santa Claus will be mingling with the crowd before the train arrives so come early for a chance to meet the big guy before he boards the train.”
