The weekend weather forecast looks good for our August Ice Cream Social!
We will be holding our August Ice Cream Social this coming Saturday, August 25th. Take any train from our Museum grounds at Sheepscot between noon and 3 p.m. and receive an ice cream when you arrive at Alna Center! Bring a blanket and a picnic basket, enjoy kite flying and old-fashioned lawn games while at Alna Center — everyone is welcome to spend as much time as they would like before taking a later train to either see the rest of our line or to return to Sheepscot. Our last return train to Sheepscot will depart Alna Center at 3.37 p.m.
Regular fare applies on all trains.
If weather does not cooperate this Saturday, our August Ice Cream Social will be held the next day — Sunday, August 26th.
Don’t Forget Our Evening Concert with Rough Sawn Saturday Evening!
A reminder that on August 25th our Summer Concert Series will feature Rough Sawn. This local string band is composed of farmers and carpenters—true salt of the earth people. They are renowned for their excellent covers of classic country, bluegrass, folk and Western swing as well as timeless originals. Their four-part harmonies are not something you’re going to want to miss.
The concert train will leave Sheepscot station promptly at 5 P.M. and return at 7:30 P.M. Parking, round-trip train fare, and concert admission are included in the price of the ticket: $15 for adults/$8.00 for children ages 4-12. Children 3 and younger are free.
Sales are limited to 100 tickets; advance sale tickets are available at wwfrytickets.simpletix.com.
We hope you can join us Saturday evening, August 25th!
