Our Rotary club teamed up with The Surrey Hills and Mont Albert Progress Association and Steamrail Victoria to run steam train rides to and from Mont Albert Station to farewell the station. The station willl cease to operate once the new Union Station is complete..In tandem with the steam train rides, our Rotary club ran the Mont Albert Market in the Hamilton Street car park. The crowds were entertained by a saxophonist, pipe band, ukulele group and a balloonist. Food stalls also provided food to the attendees. Fund’s raised on the day will be used to benefit the local community.
Our thanks to the Whitehorse Council and the Level Crossing Authority for their valued assistance with these events.
