Book Sale Huge Success

The recent CAPT book sale was a huge success. It brought in $2,860–$2,306 in book sales and $555 in sales of CAPT calendars and Painted Land DVDs!!  This is more than double the amount made at last year’s sale.

The success is due to hard working volunteers led by Dorothy Macnaughton.  We cannot thank her and the volunteers enough but we do want to mention the names of some of them at the risk of forgetting someone:

  • Dorothy and Richard Macnaughton, Donna and Mark Cushley, Pierre Verhelst, Joan and Al Johnston, Howie Wilcox, Gordon Smedley, Anne O’Connor, Dawne and Don Cunningham, Natasha Trozzo, Courtney Gillespie, Jamie McIntyre, Britta Wolfert, Jeff Hinich, Georgina Naccarato, Al Errington, Kathy Evoy, Ashleigh Sauve and Shabby Motley.

We also want to thank all of the people who contributed books.  Many people commented on the excellent quality of the books donated.

There were also lots of new signatures added to the passenger train petition.  Many, many thanks to all who came out to support the reinstatement of the passenger train!
