Seniors Ride Scenic Train



Last month, 27 seniors from Warfordsburg Senior Center traveled to Cumberland and boarded the Western Maryland Railroad. They enjoyed the beautiful mountain scenery of Western Maryland, which included the Helmstetter’s Curve, the Bone Cave, a 914-foot long tunnel that cuts through Piney Mountain, and the mile-long Gorge between Haystack and Wills Mountains, which is 1,000 feet deep. It was indeed a truly unforgettable journey. Pictured above, front row: Cathy Baden, Joanne Mellott, Henrietta Thomas, Ruth Ritz, Mary Lee Lanehart, Pat Johnson, Linda Mellott, Virginia McDonald, Nancy Leslie and Cindy Rinker; second row: Tim Baden, Ivan Shaffer, Ruby McHenry, Darlene Shaffer, Peg Keefer, Carol Slovinsky, June Moore, Ada Fletcher, Pat Johnson and Julia Hixon; third row: Evelyn Koontz, Bob McDonald, Ed Layton, Alice Layton, Bev Chronister, Sylvia Van Vlack and Gene Mellott.
