Alberta Prairie heritage celebrated through posters

Seth Lucki was at the Big Valley train station selling a slice of Alberta Prairie heritage.

On Thursday, June 29, the Main Street of Big Valley donned a festive look as people from out-of-town along with passengers of the Alberta Prairie Railway had gathered to watch the RCAF CF-18 flyby at 7 p.m.

In the midst of the crowd was Seth Lucki, 12, dressed impeccably in a suit that was hard not to notice, with a backpack of rolled-up Alberta Prairie steam train posters that he was selling as souvenirs.

“It’s a little heavy, but I sold two even before the train arrived,” said Lucki. “And so far I have been able to sell six of the 15. Am hopeful more people will buy.”

His pitch to passersby was as endearing as his personality.

“This is the train that you just rode on, it will be a great souvenir,” Lucki said.

Working a few hours at the All That Buzz Gift Shoppe on the Jimmy Jock boardwalk in Big Valley, Lucki hopes the funds he receives selling the posters will go to his paycheque too.
