The Community Service Crews continue to help with painting, cleaning and re-arranging fixtures. Barry is supervising the "curb appeal" activities. As a result they have been cleaning out the display cars.
Hans is rebuilding and completing the counters in the gift shop, Sharon has replaced the fluorescent fixtures in the Freight room and Betty, Janet, Roland and Irene worked in the gift shop to set up displays and put out stock.
Janet and Roland have taken on the task of cataloging the artifacts at the museum. They will be working mainly in the Volunteer Centre (bunkhouse). All donations must be cataloged and therefore must be verified by them.
Space has also been set aside there for Terry to set up small office for his documents and files.
The track spikes that were donated to us by PNR have been picked up by On Track Rail Services.
CN is spotting a car on the spur for cleaning. It has some lumber and laminate in it. We can have the contents in exchange for unloading it. Thanks to Louise and John.
The LaFarge 44 tonner is being inspected this week in preparation for moving to the museum. It is a major donation and we are grateful to John Staples for identifying it as a potential donation, and to John Sidor,Terminal Manager at LaFarge for making the arrangements. Thanks also to CN's Robert Emond for the final inspection prior to the move. CN has donated the cost of the move.
Feel free to visit if you wish, but plan to work a bit as well.
