95th anniversary of KCS Depot celebrated

The 1923 DeQuincy KCS Depot which houses the DeQuincy Railroad Museum held its 95th Anniversary Celebration on Saturday, Nov. 3, at the museum grounds.

There was a great turnout of families who came to enjoy: free pulled pork sandwiches, sno cones, ice cream, desserts and popcorn; free Thomas the Train videos, rides, petting zoo, cookie walk and face painting; as well as entertainment provided by Brett and Hailey Cooley, vocalists, Micky Smith, Jr., vocalist and saxophonist and George Mullican, magician.

Vance Perkins and Hershel Frazier with Le Chien Cookers made desserts, Tim Treme prepared and served the pulled pork and the ladies with DeQuincy Railroad Museum Board were instrumental in helping to make it an absolutely wonderful day that was free.

Mayor Lawrence Henagan was acknowledged by the Museum Board for his help for all his years as mayor. In appreciation, he was presented with a gift bag with DeQuincy specific gifts.

The Operation Lifesaver booth and Food Trucks were on hand, along with craft and resale booths.

The kiddie train was a big hit, as usual, with Engineer Kenny Hester.
