It's a rare fundraiser that doesn't require money upfront to make it successful, but that is what's happened with a project to raise funds for the restoration of a historic railroad depot in Ewing.

"We're taking nothing and making money out of it," Blake Hackman said.

Hackman, sponsor of Brownstown Central High School's FFA chapter, was referring to a project in which chapter members have made crafts from wood taken from the roof and west side of the freight depot, built in 1910.

The idea for the project came about when Darlene Butt approached Hackman with a craft Christmas tree she and employee Todd Darlage had found at a craft show to sell at her Ewing Uniques story.
