WEST BRANCH – The West Branch Train Depot is the oldest standing building in the city of West Branch. It is also the home to the West Branch Area Chamber of Commerce and the West Branch Visitors Bureau who are hoping to restore the 150-year-old building. In order to raise funds for the next phase of preserving the building, the “All Aboard Project”, the WBACC held a Flannel and Flapjacks event.

While it was a frosty morning, it wasn’t raining – the first dry morning in several days. Volunteers made plain, pecan, and blueberry pancakes with a choice of bacon or sausage. There were drawings, and Amazon held a ‘flapjack toss’ game.
