Eight years have flown by since Gertie began bus service on June 8, 2013! Since we can’t yet have a party with a big cake, Gertie will give you a gift instead: free bus service on Saturday, June 12 all day long. Please hum Happy Birthday to yourself when you get on the bus. Masks are required but party hats are optional!
Have you ridden our new bus Pegasus–Peg for short– yet? Thanks to Claudia Scacchi for suggesting the name. She has received a monthly bus pass. And here’s a nice tie to Gertie’s anniversary. Claudia won the prize for being the 10,000th passenger in April 2014.
have just 2 months left to raise $4,000 to put snow tires on the big buses,
Bertie and Jay D.
Market is still honouring the Community Card program for 2020 and the Gabriola
Community Bus Foundation (GERTIE) is one of the recipients. To date, we have
raised $1,390 of the $4,000 needed for the snow tires. Gertie’s counting on
your help to reach the goal.
Don’t have a Community Card? Sign up for one in-store, load it with some money and then when it is empty again watch as some of your grocery dollars help Gertie reach her goal. For every $100 spent, $5 is donated to the GCBF (GERTIE).
