CORONAVIRUS: Sertoma Club cancels season for miniature train KVOE News file photo

There will be no Sertoma Club miniature train events this year.


Board members met Tuesday night to discuss the event schedule. Club member Alice Dreier says there were two main reasons for the decision to cancel both parties and the normal event schedule.

Dreier says some track repairs were needed, but the train was ready for patrons after several rounds of flooding and repairs last year.

This causes a concern for the club because proceeds from the train are returned to the community, with some set aside as well for train and track maintenance. Plans for replacing the lost revenue are pending, but Dreier says the Sertoma Club is always taking donations and is raising money through a brick purchase program.
