I hear many complements on the FB page. The key is frequent updates which Stewart and Cindy do. And they are relevant. FB is a thankless master and our FB Team does an excellent job as the numbers prove.

Congratulations Stewart and Cindy  for the amazing  job you have been doing on fb since 2013.  No wonder WW&F fb has so many followers with all the neat  photos and newsy captions you post every week. They allow the WW&F  friends  and visitors to follow the hectic life of the association and the work of its commited volunteers on a day to day basis  .For the far away members like me the WW&F fb perfectly completes and illustrates this discussion forum. It's all due to WW&F fb that I discovered that endearing two-footer and its commited volunteers. And it's all due to the fb team  kind replies  to my numerous questions about the WW&F Ry Museum on fb messenger in October 2017 that I decided on being a member. Thank you so much you both and keep it up.

I agree.  Start and Cindy do a really creative job on FB, which for the most part is NOT a creative medium.  While most post ego-centric and boring pictures of their kids and their vacations, S&C continue to tell our story in a fascinating way.  No wonder the followers have grown so much...

8,000!

Yes, we just got our 8,000th "Like" on Facebook. Well done to Cindy, Stewart, and the rest of Team Facebook!

This is already a great start to what will be a historic Fall Work Weekend.

Congratulations all.

The WW&F Facebook page celebrated it's 10th birthday this week by reaching 8,590 followers.

Thanks to everyone who promotes the museum. The goal has always been: (1) Get people interested in what we are doing. (2) Invite them to visit the railroad. (3) Provide a good meaningful experience with tours, train rides and visiting the gift shop.  (4) Speak with them about becoming members.
