Coupland’s Choo-Choo Fest On August 17 — Fundraiser to Restore Historic Caboose
On Sunday, August 17, beginning at noon, the Coupland Civic Organization (CCO) will partner with Barbara and Tim Worthy, owners of the Old Coupland Inn and Dancehall, to hold the second annual Choo-Choo Fest, a fundraiser for the restoration of the CCO’s historic caboose.
Choo Choo Fest will be held in the beautiful Inn and Dancehall building. The barbecue meal will include delicious barbecue from the Inn and homemade beans, potato salad, coleslaw, bread, and iced tea. Meals will be offered for donations, minimum $10. Soft drinks, bottled water, and beer will be offered separately.
A bake sale will offer homemade desserts whole or by the serving. There will be a silent auction and live bands.
Last year’s Choo-Choo Fest allowed the CCO to restore three exterior sides of the caboose. Hopefully, this year’s proceeds will allow the CCO to restore the fourth exterior side, the windows, and possibly start on the interior. Both the historic Coupland Depot and caboose are owned by the CCO, which is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
