As part of its annual campaign, the CN Employees' and Pensioners' Community Fund is pleased to invite you to their thirteenth annual Centraide Western Activity at the Saint-Tite Western Festival. The event will take place on September 6, 2014. 


Participants can take a special VIA Rail train from Central Station to Saint-Tite, with stopover in Joliette and Shawinigan. The return train trip will be in the evening on the same day. On September 6, the train will leave Montreal at 7:30 a.m. with up to 250 passengers. Around 9:00, it will stop in Joliette and then, stop off in Shawinigan at 10 a.m. to pick up a maximum of 250 other passengers. The train will arrive at Saint-Tite station around 11:30 a.m. Upon its arrival, local Cowboys will be attacking the train to raise funds! If you don't want to be made prisoner, be sure to have coins in your pockets! The return train trip is slated for 8:15 p.m.


Adult tickets from Montreal and Joliette are $120, children’s are $80 (2 to 12 years old incl.). Tickets are $80 for adults and kids boarding in Shawinigan.
