|Message||I grew up in Mt. P just a few blocks from McMillan park where Old Settlers Village is now located. Part of the village includes one of the three prairie churches from north of town where my grandfather,James A. Wilson preached every Sunday in the '30s and '40s. Our church, First Methodist, was one of several that set up tents and served meals during Old Settlers Days every year and all of our family members worked shifts there. |
The annual Old Settlers Meeting was a defining event in our lives.

|Message||I heard about you on a facebook page and put you on the list to visit before my return to Chama in early summer. Looks like you have a good group and I look forward to my visit to Pleasant Hill this weekend, and lacking a schedule I hope to find someone to talk to or something to see.|
|Message||Finally, I made the visit to Mt. Pleasant to see Steam Engine #12. Though nothing was happening that day in Sept. 2016, for me it was a dream come true. Thanks to the CEO and to Matt Crull, President, we were allowed into the train barn to see #12. I felt like a kid again back on Maui, climbing all over that engine. So much memories were brought back as I marveled at the engine knowing that once long time ago, I rode in the cab as a very young boy. |
Many of my friends from Haiku, Maui didn't know the train was still running in Mt. Pleasant. Thank you very much. Mahalo and Aloha

|Message||I just want to take a quick moment here to thank all of the members and volunteers of the mcrr for everything they do to keep history in motion for not only us who grew up around the mcrr and threshers but for the whole world who come visit the reunion. I dont get to see the daily progressions activities anymore being away from Mt. Pleasant as I once did but do receive notifications/photos via facebook and am always amazed to see the accomplishments the mcrr conquered. All of your committment dedication efforts and valuable time are all very evident in photos videos and live in action during mcrr events. I had the pleasure of knowing some of those who founded and pioneer'd the mcrr. They had a vision and oh what a vision it has become. To those from afar who are reading this and have yet to attend any mcrr events especially the reunion really need to sooner than later for your travels will not disappoint you. Reunion time is near and Im excited to physically see all of the makeovers mcrr facebook has shown.|
