The Station is being restored and managed by the non-profit Friends of Freeman Station.  Please consider a tax-deductible donation:  funding has been almost entirely from private and corporate donations and are 100% tax-deductible.  We are all volunteers — mostly “young-at-heart-seniors” — and no one is paid.

Friends of Freeman Station have visited a number of venues this summer, including Tansley Woods, Appleby Car Free Sunday, the Seniors’ Centre, the LaSalle Park festival, and the 55+ Boomers’ Expo hosted by Silver&Gold Magazine at Paletta Mansion.  Visitors had a chance to see our model railway layout, get an update on restoration of the 1906 Station, and donate to the ongoing costs of renovation.  Lots of pictures on the “LLRD” page!

Next big event:  Doors Open Burlington, October 1st — at the Station!
