Icicle Station is OPEN!
The Icicle Train Station opening and celebration was a huge success! Congratulations to Mayor Rob Eaton and the City of Leavenworth for making it all happen!
Over 100 people joined in the opening celebration on Friday evening, the 25th. The festivities started about 7pm, with music, snacks and beverages, and everyone was able to tour the new facilities. Chelan County Public Works worked diligently to make it so that North Road could be opened for local access to event, rather than driving all the way to Peshastin to access the station. Great job Public Works!
There were several guest speakers prior to the trains arrival, including Keith Goehner (a Chelan County Commissioner), a representative from Patty Murray's office, and Linda Evans Parlette.
Just after 8pm, the Amtrak train arrived at Icicle Station and a group of people disembarked the train, including our mayor, Rob Eaton. It was a great photo opportunity for all. The overjoyed, teary-eyed Mayor spoke to the crowd thanking all those who had contributed to the project and those who made the project possible.
Congratulations City of Leavenworth! I believe Icicle Station is a huge success and excellent addition to our amazing Bavarian town!
