Railway Station hosts annual Fun Day



by Sylene Argent

Playing with model train sets, taking a historic caboose tour, and a barbeque lunch were just a couple of reasons why area residents headed out to the historic Essex Railway Station last Saturday afternoon to enjoy the annual Family Fun Day.

  Youth attendees to the event had a chance to get their faces painted, colour train-themed pictures, and put on their thinking-caps to complete challenging puzzles, while the more mature visitors had the opportunity to learn about the station’s history and the railway’s important influence in the development of Essex Centre.

  Attending families were able to forward a donation to Heritage Essex, the organization that maintains the historic railway station, as a show of support. Donations help maintain the historic building.

  Though other events hosted around the County over the weekend may have attracted families elsewhere, too, Saturday’s event provided representatives of Heritage Essex an opportunity to engage those who visited the Museum.
