Villa owners chip in to help get Nelson streetcar running

Nelson Electric Tramway Society needs to raise $10,000.

Walter Laurie, president of the Nelson Electric Tramway Society, accepts a $1,000 donation from Villa Motel owners Frank and Emily Shin to help with the cost of railway track repairs needed to get the Nelson streetcar running again. The Tramway Society put a call out for donations in Wednesday’s Nelson Star and the owners of the Villa were the first to chip in. Frank has put out a friendly challenge to other local businesses to see what they can contribute towards the tramway society’s goal of raising $10,000 this summer.
