The BRHS will be staffing the Burlington waycar and original Plano, Illinois depot at the Kendall County Historical Society fall festival on Saturday, September 29, and Sunday, September 30.  The festival is held at Lyon Farm located at 7935 Rte 71 between Oswego and Yorkville, Illinois.

The festival is a fun time for all ages with farm threshing, plowing, etc, ongoing. In the restored small village are several homes and businesses which will be open for tours. This is where the depot and waycar are located. There is also an antique car show as well as vintage farm tractors and equipment. There will be dozens of crafters on hand selling their goods. We will have the company store on hand as well as membership info.

I am looking for five (5) volunteers for each of the three, two hour shifts from 10AM-4PM on those two days.  The more members who help the more time each of us will have to enjoy the rest of the festivals events. If you can only help for a couple hours that will be great. I'm bringing markers to hang on the waycar and kerosene hand lanterns. 

Member Jon Habegger has volunteered to coordinate the sign-up process and will assist in coordinating the shifts.  Follow this link to go to the Lyon Farm Volunteer page for more details.. If you have questions, send an email to "lyonfarm -at- burlingtonroute.org".
