Jamestown, Ca — In an effort to raise awareness about the importance of Railtown 1897, the Tuolumne County Chamber of Commerce will hold a special mixer at the park on February 21st.
The state historic park in Jamestown is one of 48 California parks that the Governor is proposing be closed down due to budget constraints.
“We´re going to put as much pressure as we can on our legislators and the Governor to recognize Railtown for what it is and the need to keep it open,” says Chamber President and CEO George Segarini.
Segarini says the revenue generated by the over 70,000 visitors per year not only increases economic activity for Tuolumne County, but generates income to the state.
The event will take place Thursday, February 21st, from 5-7pm at Railtown 1897.
