Friendship Wagon Train will roll through Caledonia
The Friendship Wagon Train will hit the dusty trail again, rolling 108 miles from June 23 to 30 on its way to Camp Winnebago near Caledonia.
The Wagon Train has raised more than dust over the years; it’s raised thousands of dollars to benefit children and adults with developmental disabilities who attend Camp Winnebago.
This year, the wagon train will stop for lunch at Schech’s Mill in Sheldon on June 28 and the community is invited to come out. While there, visiters can check out Schech’s Mill.
For 24 years, this dedicated group of wagon-trainers has gathered and traveled through many parts of Minnesota. The group has grown to consist of people from across the country – Minnesota, Iowa, Illinois, Ohio, Kentucky, Tennessee, Alabama, Georgia and Mississippi. Many of the volunteers of the 2012 Friendship Wagon Train will be traveling across the countryside in wagons pulled by horses or mules, while others will be riding in a saddle. The public is invited to come out to see and visit with them during the week of June 23 – June 30. See more in Diana Hammell’s Caledonia Argus story.
