Trolley’s owner seeks community support
Regarding the Weyauwega trolley car issue, if you think the trolley car should remain in Weyauwega, please let the city council know how you feel.
If you would also like to donate to the trolley car to keep it here and refurbish it, let them know that.
Our city council needs to hear your voice in the matter.
This trolley car is 110 years old. That is seven years older than the Titanic.
She has historical value and should be preserved for future generations to learn from. She has been in Weyauwega for about 71 years.
Please contact the following people between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday, July 13 through Friday, July 17 and let them hear your voice: Mayor Jack Spierings and City Manager Patrick Wetzel at Weyauwega City Hall at 920-867-2630 and the Weyauwega Chamber of Commerce at 920-867-2500.
The ward representatives are Bruce Brunner and Keith Najdowski in Ward 1, Nicholas Gunderson and Shani Appleby in Ward 2 and Scott Rasmussen and Michael Kempf in Ward 3.
Donations and volunteers are much needed for a project of this size.
Look into your hearts as well as the future to see some of the possibilities a historical marker or site could mean: increased revenue for our city’s growth.
If tourists stop, they might shop for antiques, frequent restaurants, bring new growth.
We have been on news stations from New York to the West Coast.
It has gone viral on the Internet.
People are trying to find out where they could donate to save the trolley.
Please call the above council members.
We need a shelter to store the trolley in; donations to move and restore the trolley; help to create a website and a nonprofit account at a bank; and volunteers to restore the trolley.
A tarp has already been donated for the trolley, as well as an offer of a cement base to be poured for it by Leo Larsen and Bill Piotter.
