All Aboard The Fun Tyme Trolley Celebrate Mountain Strong Donation
Above, Cowboy Brad Fitch and Gail James make a run to catch the Fun Tyme Trolley, as Wayne Groome, owner, beckens them to hurry and jump on. Sharon Groome, Marsha Groome, and Jeff Klintberg shout encouragement as John Roehl, President of the Board of Crossroads Ministry, and Virgil Good, Executive Director of Crossroads, hold a check for another $500 donation to Crossroads from the sale of the CD, Mountain Strong, composed by Gail and performed by Brad. All net proceeds go to Crossroads Ministry for flood relief. Gail earmarked this donation for the Glen Haven area. She is hoping for increased sales of the CD this summer when visitors riding the Fun Tyme Trolley can hear the song. Absent from the photo is Kevin Dennis, Dennis-Tobias Band.
For those interested in the Mountain Strong CD, they are still available for $7 at the Big Horn Restaurant, Sphere of Influence Free Market Store, Rustic Mountain Charm, Hiking Hut, Coffee on the Rocks, Smokin’ Dave’s Bar B Que, The Other Side Restaurant, The Village Store, and the Dunraven Inn. For those out of town, send $10 to Rocky Mountain Proud, LLC, P.O. Box 3812, Estes Park, CO 80517. To date, $2,000 has been donated to Crossroads for flood relief.
Coming to Estes Park this year…
Welcome Fun Tyme Trolley’s fleet to Estes Park! Fun Tyme Trolleys has two 30-passenger trolleys and one 22-passenger trolley to provide you a classic trolley experience. This new driving historical sightseeing tour in the Estes Valley, Fun Tyme Trolleys has partnered up with the Town of Estes Park Historian Laureate, Jim Pickering, to develop an informational, entertaining and historical tour to give not only visitors but locals, a true insight into the Estes Valley and the town of Estes Park.
Tours begin in May, two tours a day – one historical sightseeing and one RMNP tour. May schedule will vary so please check the website for definite times (www.FunTymeTrolleys.com). Starting in June, Tours will happen seven days a week. The Historical Sightseeing tour is approximately 90 minutes and will cover sites such as MacGregor Ranch, The Stanley, Mary’s Lake Lodge and much, much more. The RMNP tour is approximately two hours long and will cover the lower loop of the park only. This tour will provide three to four stops for picture taking while learning about the history and natural vegetation of this area. *Note: Tours are weather dependent.
Tour times: 10 a.m.-Historical Sightseeing, 1:30 p.m.-Rocky Mountain National Park.
Both tours will begin and end at the Visitor Center, with an optional stop downtown (at the end of the tour) for guests to take advantage of the shops and restaurants. Those guests that depart downtown will be encouraged to take the town’s free shuttle back to their cars at the Visitor Center.
Fun Tyme Trolleys also offers their services for charters, weddings, family reunions and any group activity.
