Tolko is marking its 50th anniversary by giving someone else a gift. The company is turning $40,000 over to the Armstrong steam train station.
President and CEO Al Thorlakson said of the decision to donate, “We’re celebrating our past by investing in the future,” the Morning Star reported him as saying. “I’m proud of our employees for suggesting the projects they did.”
In May, Tolko pledged to provide every division with money that was to be donated to charities or projects in the communities the company operates in. Tolko earmarked a total of $420,000 for donations.
The all-wood train station will be built along Pleasant Valley Boulevard, and will serve as a tourist attraction.
