History of Dryden Book

Posted by Jeanine Risch on September 26, 2012 at 4:35 PM Comments comments (93)

The new and improved History of Dryden Book is in!  $25.00 each available at the Depot, Mill Street Station or during any of our upcoming events.  If you wish to order a copy - please send a check for $25.00 to PO Box 93, Dryden MI  48428.  It includes most everything from our previous bicentennial book with additional families and pictures.  All newly scanned and retyped.  The proceeds are to help us repair and replace the roof.  If you get the chance to stop by during Dryden Fall Festival,  (September 29, Saturday), stop by and take a look at the book.  It would make a wonderful Christmas present for any relative that grew up in Dryden.

Train Light

A huge thanks to Tim Hill for fixing the train crossing lights at the depot so they flash now!  They are awesome.  We have military items on display at the depot.  The back freight room is finished.  The place has certainly made a dramatic change.  We are open Monday evenings from 5:30 to 7:00 pm and I will have the lights on!  Please stop by and take a look.

Our next project is putting a tin roof on the depot.  We will accept any and all donations.  This project will cost over $10,000.  We want to preserve and protect the history of Dryden.  All donations are tax deductible - so if you feel the urge - please stop by with a donation or mail them to P.O. Box 93, Dryden MI  48428.  If you would like to become a member the yearly fee is only $5.00 per individual or $10.00 for the family.  Send your name, address, and e-mail along with membership fee.

Thank you all for your continued support and help.
