Letter: Holiday Train surpasses goal
The Canadian Pacific Holiday Train made its sixth annual stop in Cottage Grove on Friday, Dec. 12 from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. The Canadian Pacific Railroad estimated the crowd at 6,000 strong. The Holiday Train Committee decided to be realistic, with the state of the economy, and set a monetary goal of $30,000, but the generosity of so many people helped us raise approximately $50,000 and 10,000 pounds of food and toys! All proceeds go directly to the Friends in Need Food Shelf in St.
