Roscommon Community Foundation Announces First New Fund of 2013

The Roscommon County Community Foundation (RCCF) is pleased to announce its first new Fund for 2013, the Roscommon Historic Model Train Club Building Fund. This Special Project Fund is intended to provide financial support to the Roscommon Historic Model Train Club (RHMTC), specific to the building campaign, which includes but is not limited to the purchase and restoration of the current RHMTC building.

The Roscommon Historic Model Train Clubs mission is to educate and promote public interest in the building and operation of model trains. The RHMTC was founded in 2008 and took position of the historic building next to the railroad tracks at 815 Lake Street, downtown Roscommon, in 2010. In addition, the RHMTC received via donation a 1.5 scale train and tracks, which they
restored and used to establish “The Garden Railway” park. The park, which is located next to the Train Depot, features rides for children of all ages. The 1.5″ scale ride-on track layout was completed in spring 2012.

Signing the new Fund agreement from L. to R. are Mary T. Fry, Pres./CEO, RCCF, Bob Edward, President of RHMTC and Ken Bendick, Treasurer of RHMTC
