CP Holiday Train in Millet a Christmas experience

Mayor Tony Wadsworth says event strongly supported community

I would like to say a big, big thank you, thank you, thank you to all those wonderful people who came out to greet the arrival of the CP Holiday Train as it entered Millet on Sunday night, December 9th!

What a tremendous sight it was!! The festive scenes lighting up the length of the Holiday Train as it pulled into Town in the darkness; the entire downtown area of Millet lit up amongst the snow and filled with a solid throng of people cheering and waving as the train approached. It was just like a magical scene out of any Christmas movie! And it only seems to get bigger and better every time the Millet community is lucky enough to come together in this manner and enjoy the whole experience.

We are all so much richer, as individuals and a community, for this beautiful, warm experience that fills our hearts with joy, wonder and magic as we enter the Christmas Season. Thank you, CP Rail, for allowing Millet to have this wonderful opportunity again!

Many thanks are also due to so many others this year, led by the Millet Food Bank, Millet Lions Club and Millet Fire Department and their sponsors, notably Ron Fengstad, Dick Squires, 387 Entertainment and Prairie Fire Events. Their efforts are what make this event so special for all of us!

How rewarding it also was to learn afterwards that the generous contributions of food and cash from all those coming in to town on that night for this event saw the Town of Millet win the unofficial local Food Bank Challenge “bragging rights” between the Cities of Leduc and Wetaskiwin and our own Town. Thank you again to all of those who came out as you did!!
