Hilltown Hikers Directors Karen, Russ and I attended the Hobo Harvest Saturday afternoon hosted by the Chester Foundation at the Chester Railway Station. This is a community fundraising event with a train theme, attendees get served dinner in the railstation of beef stew and are entertained by “train hobos” dressed in character. I played Mrs. Homer Smith, train conductors wife. As a Trustee, I invite everyone to take part, we do this every year, its fun and the homemade food is incredible! Karen McTaggart and I had the pleasure of speaking to so many including Leonard Alexander, call boy and the last to replace the teeth on the granite saw, Bruce Cooper who witnessed the last fire at the saw on his bike then going to tell his dad the mill was on fire. A big thank you to all the Trustees for their hard work!
