The Canadian Pacific Railway Holiday Train will make a stop in Springwater Township at 12:15 p.m. on Tuesday, November 29 at Highway 26 and Anne Street North.
The Holiday Train collects food and money for both the Elmvale Food Bank and the Barrie Food Bank and raises awareness in the fight against hunger. The Holiday Train provides a box car stage, a line-up of great musical talent and a corporate contribution to both Food Banks. Residents attending this event are encouraged to donate food and funds, all of which will stay in the local community.
