BLACK BUTTE CENTER FOR RR CULTURE
MERLE HAGGARD TRIBUTE/SHASTA CAR FUNDRAISER:
Grey Eagle, Asheville, NC, April 6, 2019
For any friends of BBCRC near Asheville, NC, please come to our fundraiser on April 6th, organized by board member Brody Hunt. A fun evening of honky tonk music celebrating the legacy of Merle Haggard on his birthday. It's our third annual fundraiser in Asheville and will feature many great musicians with proceeds going to the ongoing restoration of the BBCRC's SP 109 Shasta car. Get tickets early as this is likely to be a sold-out show!

Railcars in Need of Repair!
There is now a total of six pre-Great Depression wood railcars at Black Butte. Our boxcar, built in 1919, is now 100 years old! The wear and tear due to our at-times harsh winter has been taking its toll! In short, we have a lot of work to do! Siding replacement, rebuilding the skylights on the reefer, repainting, window work and much more. We are really going to need help to do this--both volunteer labor and financial donations for materials. We have extended our railcar fundraiser until the end of April. Please check it out and, if you haven't done so already and have even just a few bucks to spare, please consider a donation, either by check to BBCRC or on our Go Fund Me page (and note that while you will be asked for a substantial "donation" to Go Fund Me, that is optional, you don't have to pay the recommended amount or anything at all. This is the link for the GN caboose page: https://www.gofundme.com/wooden-great-northern-caboose and this is the one for our boxcar/reefer page:

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $75.00 of $75.00 - reached!
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $100.00 of $100.00 - reached!
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $100.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
