We wish we could absorb the expense but as a non-profit we can not at this time.

Painting the flagpole

Board president and Paint Doctor Todd Gillihan painted the dilapidated flagpole at the depot this fall,

replaced the flag, and we are now able to change it on or own - without calling the local fire department!


Longtime Depot Board president Larry Bean

and his family could use your prayers and good wishes as he navigates through a difficult health issue. Thank you for joining us in wishing him well.
