"PEI Railway, where did it go?"

As part of the Sunday Bruch Speaker Series at the Sir Andrew Macphail Homestead we would like to invite the public to an event on Sunday July 28th, 2019. Peter Metaxas, a Belfast resident and business owner, will present a brief history of the PEI railroad with emphasis on the stops local to the Macphail Homestead. There will be several interesting railway artifacts will be on display as stories and memories of the railway era gathered from residents are presented. Discussion will also center on some of the challenges faced when moving and renovating the Fodhla station. Mr. Metaxas operates his business out of the historic Iona Railway Station building that he procured several years ago.

Peter Metaxas, is a local entrepreneur, who, trying to escape the thin air near the top of the corporate ladder with his wife Dina, and their 12 year daughter, moved to Prince Edward Island in 1988. Their first grandson, Axton Thomas James Bradley, was born in Charlottetown in 2018. As a single young man Peter visited P.E.I. many times from 1969 to 1976.

Starting at 11:30 we will serve a generous brunch (three choices and an abundance of coffee) and at about 12:30 the lecture will begin. This series is a fundraiser for the Homestead and the cost is $25 per person. Please email or call 902 651-2789 to make a reservation up to 10am on Sunday.
