Canada Day brings new Abigail items

This is what all the hard work was about: a brand new CD, with recordings of author Mark Walma reading the four stories from Abigail Massey at McAdam Station, Volume 1.

Plus a fantastic new display box for all four of the Abigail books (the first three collections of stories and the new Christmas novella, "coming this November").

"I'm pretty happy with the results," Mark said as he prepared for his appearance at the Canada Day celebrations in McAdam on Tuesday. "Lynn did an awesome job with the designs of the display case, the CD cover and the novella."

Mark explained that, even though the red stickers for the CDs themselves are beautiful, Lynn has expressed a concern that they might peel off and damage people's CD players. "So we've decided to forego them for now," he said. "They're beautiful, to be sure, but I'd rather sell unadorned CDs than do any damage."

The entire Village of McAdam celebrates Canada Day in style, with local artisans and crafts people setting up tables around the Train Station for the day and a big parade through the community, starting at 10:30 a.m.

"It's always a lot of fun," Mark said. "It will be a beautiful day so we hope we have huge crowds to come out and get to know the Station and the Village of McAdam."
