Thanks to the Rail Days volunteers

We would like to thank you and your staff for the great support you extended to the Arrowsmith Potters Guild, helping us celebrate the 125th Anniversary of the Last Spike driven on Vancouver Island.

We would like to thank you and your staff for the great support you extended to the Arrowsmith Potters Guild, helping us celebrate the 125th Anniversary of the Last Spike driven on Vancouver Island.

Many organizations, and even more volunteers, were involved in making this event come to life.

Our Guild members, the E&N Division of the CRHA, Dashwood Fire Department, Parksville/Qualicum Shriners Club, Garden Railroaders Club, the West Coast Railway Association, Craig Heritage Museum, the Island Speeders, the Island Corridor Foundation, Southern Rail of Vancouver Island, the BCSA and others all helped make an entertaining, informative weekend for everyone.

Without those many volunteers, events like this would not happen.

Thanks to all those who came to play with clay and see the raku firing at our Station Gallery and Studios.

Come by and visit anytime.

Jacie Herbison, President, Arrowsmith Potters Guild, Parksville
