It’s here! Our new logo has arrived!
One of our big goals, especially since our incorporation, has been to develop a unique logo to give the society an identity. This allows us to better promote our goals and also helps us attract new members. Many thanks go out to Laurie and Kathy at The Creative Crew for helping us put this all together.
When deciding on the inspiration for the logo, we had a lot of things to chose from. However, we finally settled on using something from the railway, since the Port Arthur, Duluth and Western -Pee Dee- Railway was such a huge part of the history of the Silver Mountain area. The image depicted on the logo comes from one of the most iconic photographs of the railway. This particular picture shows engine #108 of the Canadian Northern Railway, a 2-6-0 mogul, presumably at Mackies Siding in 1918.
Look for the new logo at the upcoming Home and Garden Show, April 5-7 at the CLE in Thunder Bay.
