And it’s no wonder: even the overcast sky and occasional light rain couldn’t dampen the spirits of the 62 participants, including 6 children, aboard the Credit Valley Explorer! We sold out our train car and raised in total $1,385 for the Bruce Trail Conservancy.
The train left the station in Orangeville for a 3-hour ride down to Snelgrove and back.
Guests were treated to a first class meal, from elegant cheese plate appetizer to apple blossoms for dessert.
Thanks to our sponsors (Millcroft Inn, Caledon Public Library, Credit Valley Snow Train, and Bruce Trail Conservancy), much fun was had with the raffle draw for four great prizes. A stop at the General Store in Inglewood rounded out the day’s activities.
But it was the beautiful fall colours and breathtaking heights on trestle bridges that were the real stars of the day.
Director at Large, Marisa Jokelainen, rated the day “right on track”.
Thanks to Andree Zeritsch, Janice McClelland, and Diane McKenzie for making this event happen.
Thank you for joining us, and see you next year!
