Travel Town Volunteers shine
at our Annual Awards Luncheon!

The Travel Town Museum Foundation thanked all of its wonderful volunteers on Saturday, June 11 with an appreciation luncheon. We presented 30 of our outstanding volunteers with Presidential Service Awards and Congressional Service recognition certificates. Our volunteers donated over 6,494 hours in the past year making Travel Town a better place for visitors and the people of Los Angeles.

OUR MISSION

The mission of the Foundation is to educate the public about railroad history as it pertains to the development of the Southwest Region of the United States, particularly the Los Angeles area. We fulfill this mission by supporting the restoration, operation, and interpretation of the historic railroad equipment at the City-operated Travel Town Museum in Griffith Park.

The Foundation supports Travel Town by helping the Department of Recreation & Parks to fund and administer the Museum's volunteer programs, restoration projects and educational outreach efforts. Many of the Museum's programs and activities are funded through grants and donations along with proceeds from our Museum Gift Shop.

We hope you will come for a visit and experience all the Park has to offer you and your family. Become a member, volunteer, shop in the Gift Shop, take a Docent Tour, ride the train and, most of all, keep the rails alive! See you soon!

The Travel Museum Town Foundation is a dba of the American Southwestern Railway Association, Inc.,
 a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization working in partnership with the City of Los Angeles, Department of Recreation & Parks
