The Parksville Museum has applied to the province’s ‘Fairs, Festivals and Events Recovery Fund’ for expenses related to their annual Railway Day event, and can now boast support from the city’s council in their application.
The Railway Day event took place earlier this year on Aug. 21.
Mayor Ed Mayne advised council he already wrote a letter showing his personal support as mayor, and was looking to include additional council support by way of a formal resolution that could be forwarded and included with the museum’s application.
Mayne’s motion, seconded by Coun. Al Greir, passed unanimously at the last council meeting on Oct. 4.
