It was a wonderful night for the community and the local food bank when the CP Rail Holiday Train stopped at Notch Hill on Monday

Train delivers Christmas spirit

Louise Barber is shouting out a special thank you to all who attended and supported the CP Rail Holiday Train at Notch Hill on Monday night, Dec. 15.

The railway presented Jim Chisholm, who is in charge of Sorrento’s food bank, with a cheque for $4,000.

A crowd of between 900 to 1,000 people donated close to 3,500 pounds of food as well as cash donations.

The Holiday Train has stopped at Notch Hill for about eight years, due to the efforts of Sue P. Moore and Marcha Adams, from the Notch Hill Town Hall Association, says Barber.

Barber says proceeds of the association’s Christmas raffle will go to a new roof for the community hall.

Christmas craft winners were first – Janice Darbyson, second – Adrian Romyn and third – Stacey Williams. The 50/50 prize of $42.50 was won by Ian McLafferty.
