Scenic Train Excursions Date To Be Announced
Information for the 2020 Autumn Glory Ride Scenic Train Excursions will be announced soon. The Morrisons Cove Rotary Club sponsors the train ride every fall.
The Autumn Glory Rides are a beloved family tradition for many local residents and visitors. Participants enjoy scenic views and immerse themselves in local history as their train winds through the Allegheny Mountains of Blair County. The Morrisons Cove Rotary Club uses the proceeds raised by the excursions to support many causes in the Morrisons Cove area, including numerous youth programs.
Excursion tickets are only $12 per rider and all seats are reserved. Children under three may sit on an adult’s lap at no additional charge. The train departs from Roaring Spring’s historic train station, located across from the World-Famous Spring and travel towards Hollidaysburg. Riders disembark at the present day Kladder Station along Monastery Road for a special presentation and then return to the Roaring Spring train station. The length of the ride is about 1.5 hours including the return trip to the train station.
The excursions feature authentic train coaches owned and operated by the Everett Railroad Company of Duncansville. Light food and beverages will be available at the Train Station including ice cream to benefit the Roaring Spring Historical Society.

Scarlet Dragon Back Pack Program
Morrisons Cove Rotary Club members’ involvement in the Scarlet Dragon Pack Program is a collaboration with other community churches and organizations, as well as with other community-interested people. Several of the club’s members have an active role weekly or bi-weekly, while remaining Rotarians volunteer monthly to help stuff food bags and distribute food to Roaring Spring Elementary and Martinsburg Elementary Schools.
Past Presidents’ Dinner
The Morrisons Cove Rotary Club annually holds its Past Presidents’ Dinner to celebrate and recognize past presidents of the club. The dinner is a time to reflect on the past, present and future of Rotary and to highlight some accomplishments along the way. Each year The Paul Harris Award, named for its founder, is awarded to individual Rotarians that have supported the Rotary Foundation with $1,000. The Foundation supports charitable efforts around the globe, from fresh water to food, and most notably the eradication of Polio. The Past Presidents’ Dinner is a great way for Rotarians to meet new leadership, reflect on what has been accomplished in the past, look forward to new goals and to show great appreciation to all of the presidents that have came before and the impact they have created on the Club.
MCRC participates annually in two community parades: the Roaring Spring Community Fireman’s Parade and the Martinsburg July 4th parade.
