Early last week, vandals damaged and defaced items at the rail park site in the Town of El Dorado. Our amazing volunteers with El Dorado Western jumped in and set a clean up day for Friday July 14th and erased the signs of offensive graffiti and damage.  There will still need to be some effort to replace the broken out windows on the caboose and on a rail speeder. 

Hooray for our Volunteers! We applaud and thank you!
