Thanks to all the retailers who sold our second edition Miniature Train Ride Puzzle to their patrons, including Brant Basics, Griffin’s Greenhouse, Fork in the Road Country Market, and Ennismore Pharmacy.

This special 308-piece, 11 x 17-inch puzzle of the current 1860 locomotive replica has helped to raise $7,500 toward our Capital Train Campaign to replace the train ride.

If you are still looking for your limited edition gift you can find them at Active Chiropractic and Wellness Centre and House of Scales who are continuing the sale while their quantities last!

Thanks to those organizations already on board our Train Campaign:

Kiwanis Club of Peterborough, Kawartha Rotary, Knights of Columbus, Peterborough Kinsmen, Ross and Ann Dobbin, Patrick McAuley Group of Relators, Ennismore Pharmacy, Fork in the Road Country Market, House of Scales, Brant Basics, Griffin's Greenhouse, Active Chiropractic and Wellness Centre and Peterborough Accident Report Services Ltd. and all the train seat sponsors and train campaign donors.

Donate today!

Together we have already reached $250,000 toward the new train ride!
