Kudos for evening market

"this event was very successful and (I) would definitely support and be involved in other night markets going forth".

On behalf of the Steelworkers, Local 480 and its executive, as President of the Local I would like to thank and give kudos to Trail Chamber of Commerce, City of Trail and all the volunteers that organized Trail’s first outdoor evening market on August 20.

Judging by the exceptional turnout and support from the citizens of the Greater Trail and surrounding area, I would have to say that this event was very successful and would definitely support and be involved in other night markets going forth.

Local 480 Charities depend on sales of hamburgers and hot dogs at these markets to fundraise for some of their charities, especially the Gordy Steep Sick Children Fund, which supports and assists the area’s sick children seeking medical treatment out of town.

A big thank you to all that supported our fundraising and to Norm Casler for overseeing and making sure everything and everyone’s needs were met on August 20.  Let’s do it again!

Ammindo DeMedeiros
