Bring back the Jacksonville Trolley!

Jacksonville’s beloved mascot needs some help.  After missing out on most of this past season due to mechanical problems we are moving forward with ensuring we have a trolley in place for the upcoming season.

We are looking at replacing the engine and transmission or possibly purchasing a newer trolley.  So we need to raise some funds to help with these costs.  A new paint job and some repair on oak woodwork is also needed.

If we are really successful we might even be able to build a better storage facility.  We want to keep the new paint job and the oak benches in pristine condition.

We know many of you have cherished memories of riding on the trolley or seeing it in the parades and are eager to help us bring it back.  Go to to make a contribution through our Generosity account.  This is Indigogo’s non-profit crowd sourcing tool.

If you are interested in discussing a major contribution, please contact Tim Balfour at
