Annual Celebration

We had a blast at the 20th Annual Celebration of Orphan Train Riders!

Speakers were Gary Nolan, Pippa White, Lori Halfhide, and Kaily Carson. We had 57 registrants, and few more attendees! Celebration this year brought in over $4,000, which will be used to install a new window shade in the Jones Education Station and replace our old brick platform. Thank you for attending!

Our local sponsors made Celebration possible.
