The Canadian Pacific Holiday Train returned to the North Country last week, stopping at the Amtrak station in the city of Plattsburgh Nov. 30. The stop included entertainment from recording artists Shaun Verreault, Willy Porter and Kaylen and Kelly Prescott as well as an appearance by Santa Claus. The stop also featured a check presentation from Canadian Pacific to the Joint Council for Economic Opportunity of Clinton and Franklin Counties. JCEO executive director Bruce E. Garcia, seen at far right, joined Plattsburgh City Mayor Donald M. Kasprzak, second from left, in accepting a ceremonial check for $1,500 from CP representatives. The Holiday Train event also collected canned goods from attendees also to benefit JCEO food pantries.
