The dedication for the station will be held on July 28th at 11:00 A.M., the last Saturday during Railroad Days.  Hopefully, the weather gods will bless us with good weather.

I got word via e mail from Lee Beaujon on June 10th that the July 28th dedication ceremony for Canaan Station has been canceled because the station isn't completed.  Big disappointment not just for him & I but for others who have already set aside money & time to come.

I heard the same thing a couple of days ago from a Canaan resident. He mentioned some difficulty in getting a CO. Hopefully it gets worked out.

I spoke to John Lannen, the person that heads up Canaan Railroad Days, Monday night & he told me also about problems with Certificate Of Occupancy for the station.  I'm hoping it gets resolved soon, also.
