Candle Lighters celebrate new Central Park Railroad
Submitted By Joella Thompson
The Candle Lighters, a local organization that raises money to donate to local non-profits using proceeds earned from The Ghost House at the Fremont Hub each year, celebrated one of its special project donations on September 15, 2016. The Candle Lighters were a major contributor in the funding of the new Central Park Railroad for the City of Fremont Recreation Department.
The Candle Lighters logo is prominently displayed on an orange car of the train, and the engine is named for the organization. It will be used to shuttle the children at summer camps and school vacation camps held at Central Park. It is equipped with seat belts for safety; there will always be an adult in the front and back cars of the train. A PA system is part of the train so students can learn about the park, its animals, and other interesting facts while on the ride. The train does not require tracks, and plans include stamping cement with a train track and train crossing signs.
Candle Lighters is very proud to be able to provide funding for this worthwhile special project, and celebrated its arrival in Fremont with a viewing and a short ride in the park.
