Happy Holiday Train

CP’s Holiday Train received a big welcome in Chase and throughout the Shuswap.

A big crowd turned out to enjoy the 19th Annual CP Holiday Train in Chase on Dec. 15, with featured performer Alan Doyle and the Beautiful Band. The Chase Christmas Hamper Society went home happily with a cheque for $5,500 from donations to CP. In the Shuswap, the train also stopped at Canoe, Salmon Arm and Sicamous.

“The Holiday Train program is all about local food banks and food shelves and the critical role they play in our communities,” said Keith Creel, CP’s president and chief executive officer, prior to the train trip. “People come for the beautifully lit train and stay for the incredible show – all in the name of community. The holiday season is the best time of the year, and we look forward to bringing together thousands of Canadians and Americans this season for this incredibly important cause and a great time.”
