CN 100th Celebrations - Winnipeg
Thursday, September 19th to Sunday, September 22nd, 2019
Update to All Volunteers - Please click here to read an update about the Winnipeg Celebrations.
Preparations are well underway for the CN 100th Celebrations. It will be a Moving Celebration Tour across Canada. As CN continues to finalize the preparations, they want to emphasize the important role that CN Pensioners have played in the success of CN over the past century as well as how important the participation of CN Pensioners and their families will be to the success of the 100th Celebration events.
The Moving Celebration Tour is scheduled to be in Winnipeg from Thursday, September 19th to Sunday, September 22nd, 2019 and will be located at the CN Stage and Field at The Forks. The Village will consist of 7 themed containers/areas with individual exhibits:
- People - Starting with "People", we will listen to the stories of CN employees as they share their perception of the company in their own words.
- Scenery - a fast-motion train ride across Canada.
- History - Visitors will discover the history of CN over the past 100 years.
- Future - Visitors will be able to project themselves into the future by creating their own version of the train of tomorrow.
- Family Zone - Families can build a train of the future at the Lego installation.
- Bookbox - Visitors will be able to educate themselves with the books in the "Safety" zone.
- Photobooth - Site visits will end with a souvenir photo session at our large photobooth.
As well, Little Obie and Max (train) will be on hand for local transportation.
Sunday, September 22nd will be designated as CN Family Day for CN employees, pensioners and their families. On this day only, there will be a Barbeque and features for children.
We need your help! CNPA volunteers and / or spouses are required for each station of the exhibit. Each volunteer will receive a CN 100 logo polo shirt or fleece sweatshirt and cap, to be worn while working as a volunteer. As we become aware of more details, these will be announced at our April, May and June General Meetings as well as posted on our website (cnpensioners.ca) and Facebook page (www.facebook.com/cnpensionersmanitoba) and in our upcoming National and Manitoba newsletters.
