Fundraising Update #4

Great News!!!!! We were notified by the Town of Milton that our Grant application in the amount of $35,000 was approved. The funds will be spent on concrete and granular materials to complete the exterior walls down to grade, pour a 2900 SqFt concrete pad for the parts area, entrance slabs at the exterior doors, a walkway along the south side of the building, and a walkway along the east end of the building both inside and out. This work will commence in October.

In preparation, we need to get the tracks built, and funds are required. In addition to funds on hand, $10,000 is required to complete all the tracks inside the building. If we are successful in raising the money, all the tracks and concrete work will be complete by November, at which time we can move cars into the building and it will finally fulfill its purpose. Please contribute if you can.

We would be remiss if we didn't mention a $3,000 cash donation towards the project by the Canadian Pacific Railway. The donation was made as part of an employee matching program to match donations made by Tom Twigge and David Johns.
