Williamsville Depot 2020

by Tom Stackhouse

January - February 2020

Here is our Spring - Summer - Fall "Schedule of Events" put together by the Williamsville Depot Steering Committee for 2020. It's an ambitious list that we hope will draw larger crowds than we had last year. We hope that all of you will find one or more events that you'll be sure to enjoy! Hope to see you at the Depot!

        "All Aboard" was the name of the "Amherst Symphony" music program played at the Amherst Middle School on Sunday February 9th. All but one song was railroad oriented. They also had a Petting Zoo. The "pets" were musical instruments on display that the kids could touch. Art Toale, Paul Mayer and I, in our Conductors uniforms, circled throughout the "Petting Zoo."

        We handed out Society information, answered questions and had a lot of pictures taken with kids and adults. Former Mayor, Ron Daniels, entertained the children with a model train layout. Current Mayor Deb Rogers entertained the children by reading "The Little Engine That Could". Walter Simpson provided an excellent railroad slide program that was tied into the music.

Our Society tables were full of information at our February 15th and 16th, 2020 Winter Train Show at the Hamburg Fair Grounds for all the visitors as they entered the show. The Williamsville Depot had a silent auction of 16 wonderful items. This perfect fundraiser was supported by many members of our steering committee.

All Aboard for the "Candy Train" at the show. Marty Visciano from the Williamsville Depot again ran this popular display. The train was loaded with an assortment of chocolate treats for children young and old. The layout was created with help from both the Orchard Park and Williamsville Depot crews.

The Williamsville Depot usually has a vibrant and full summer schedule. We had planned a wonderful calendar of fun events for 2020. But as you can imagine why, it has our committee on hold until families feel safe to gather in groups out in public again. Please continue to check on this website and Facebook: Williamsville Lehigh Valley Depot for any changes in status. We hope you and your family remain safe during this historical pandemic of 2020.
Call the Depot at 716-633-7002 or   eMail Marty V.   Thank You!
