Brownstown/Ewing Main Street members had reason to celebrate Thursday night as they kicked off a fundraising campaign to raise $25,000 for a project to enrich their community.
The group, which formed in June 2010 to help breathe life back into the downtown and nearby Ewing, has raised just under $1,000 toward the goal. That money will be used to move the old Ewing Depot away from the CSX railroad line onto property that was donated to the cause.
Main Street chairwoman Linda McCormick said there are plans to restore the depot so that it can be used again, possibly as a rest stop for bicyclists and other visitors to the area.
