Freeman - view from the south - volunteers needed

The outside of the Freeman station is looking pretty good – lots more to be done on the inside.

Does any of this appeal to you?

How about being a part of the team that has contributed over 3,000 hours of effort to get the Freeman Station to the point where they are thinking seriously in terms of setting a date for the place to open.

Freeman - close to final

The was the end of stage 1 – getting the station off blocks and to he location where it would rest on a foundation. That was phase two. The volunteers who are making this happen have put in more than 3000 hours of work – so far.

The Freeman Station has a proud history, not because of what the majority of city council did to keep it from being sold for kindling – but proud because of the tiring efforts and hard work to first find a site for the structure and then to raise the funds to get it moved and then to get started on the work that will make it a destination for many visitors to the city.

The Friends of Freeman Station want you to dig out your work gloves and wear old clothes and then show up on one of the two (both if you are so inclined) volunteer dates: April 16th and April 30th.

Getting it - blueWith the hardest part of winter behind them – the team will be out in full force. There is a lot to be done yet

The team would like to know what kind of talent is going to show up: alert them about your skills by emailing them at – and let them know what you can do.
