When the Canadian Pacific Holiday Train rolled into Creston on Dec. 11, it came bearing a $5,500 cheque for the Creston Valley Gleaners Society food bank, accepted by department head Doreen Lowe from Creston basic track maintenance force track maintainer/truck driver John Lindhorst and CP government affairs director Mike LoVecchio.

Hundreds of spectators of all ages braved below-freezing temperatures to gather on the train platform behind Millennium Park for its arrival, and enjoyed entertainment that included performances by Matt Dusk and Melanie Doane, as well as a visit from Santa Claus.
