The Friends of the Port Hope Railroad Depot have been both astonished and delighted by the number of people who have appeared each Tuesday at the building site. We recognize and value our volunteers as they contribute to preserving the 1904 Pere Marquette Depot. Most are individuals who are jacks-of-all-trades who can master any of the tasks that need to be accomplished for the day.
There are the groups and teams who have come from out of town to help. One team consisted of students from Olivet College. A few weeks later the Harbor Beach Chemical Bank employees assisted in various projects. Another valued volunteer team is the Depot Ladies Club. These friends arrive every Tuesday noon with a delightful and hearty lunch for the day’s volunteers.
