James Macdonald, the manager of the Revelstoke A&W, received two coffee table books from Operation Lifesaver volunteers as thanks for his support of the program.
Operation Lifesaver is a CP Rail program that promotes awareness of railway safety to children, emergency services personnel and others.
Macdonald was presented with copies of Great Glacier & It’s House, by William Putnam; and Nicholas Morant’s Canadian Pacific, by J.F. Garden.
“I think it’s important, the railway awareness, especially in town,” said Macdonald on why he supports the program. He added he’s seen many people cross over the tracks from Lower Town to go to his restaurant.
