Last summer a village resident inquired about having her wedding rehearsal dinner at the Depot. To make a long story short, about 40 to 50 people  attended. It was catered by a local restaurant. It was a resounding success.

We would like to explore doing similar events (rehearsal dinners, family get-together’s, bridal showers etc.) this summer.

We are asking local residents to consider becoming docents for the Depot. This would be for one Sunday afternoon per month or more if desired.


For details and information call 633-7002 and ask for Tom
