It’s the season of giving. With that in mind, Rail Trail ambassadors are out in droves promoting their Gift-a-Metre, a fundraiser that allows people to support the trail by purchasing a piece of it for a donation. Mayor Akbal Mund joined ambassadors Kelly Goodwill and Laurie Postill in promoting the fundraiser at Bean Scene in Vernon on Dec. 12. Mund said the Gift-a-Metre is a “perfect” alternative to giving teachers a gift at Christmas. Postill said, for those who wish to have a keepsake, an official Rail Trail Gift-A-Metre certificate can be downloaded from their website.

“Instead of spending money on purchasing a thing, why not spend $16 and buy them a metre on the Rail Trail — it’s a lasting legacy and it’s environmentally friendly,” he quipped. “No wrapping paper.”
