TOFIELD HANDIVAN SOCIETY

In 1990, a group of citizens formed an organization to raise funds for the purchase of a Handivan to use in the Tofield area. Their efforts, and generous community support, made it possible to purchase the "Tofield Handivan".

In 1996, the Tofield Handivan was made available to groups within the community who may not require the lift, and the operational name was changed to "Tofield Bus". Although currently, day to day operations of the bus are the responsibility of Town of Tofield, the Handivan Society still remains active, and oversees these operations.

The Society has been successful at obtaining grants for the continued operations of the Tofield Bus. In addition, generous donations from the community, memorial donations, and fundraising efforts by other groups, have supported the continued operations of the Bus and Van.

If you would like more information regarding the Bus, the Tofield Handivan Society, or about making a donation, please contact:

Theresa Manderson  (Treasurer) at 780-662-2490.
