From Friends of Freeman Station –
The Friends of Freeman Station have set up a schedule of “community outreach” events, June through October and needs your help. The aim is to meet the public to tell the Friends of Freeman story and to raise funds to achieve financial and operational goals, with Opening Day for the station of July 1, 2017. The Friends came together to preserve and restore the historic Freeman train station, now located on Fairview St., West of Brant.
The event schedule is as follows:
Wednesday, June 1st – at Tansley Woods Community Centre
Sunday, June 5th – at Car Free Appleby
Tuesday, June 21st – at Burlington Seniors’ Centre
Saturday, July 16th – at the Burlington Junction Station (tentative)
Holiday Monday, August 1st – at Joseph Brant Day, LaSalle Park
Thursday, August 18th – at Paletta Lakefront Park (mansion)
Saturday, September 17th – Alderfest
Saturday, October 1 – Doors Open Burlington at the Station
Each event will require at least 4 or 5 volunteers representing FOFS. Some events are 10-12 hours in duration which would require an additional 4 people as a relief shift.
So this is a request for your participation —– please tell us which events you can volunteer to help.
