Event Details

This service memorializes a touching story of a pioneer lad and his love for the train that passed near his family’s tarpaper shack. Big Bill Chambers, conductor of the train, spotted the boy as the train passed by, and they would wave to each other. Upon learning that the boy had died and was buried by the tracks, and that his family had moved on, Big Bill Chambers became the Little Fellows family. He made arrangements for the care of the grave and the annual stop of the train to leave a bouquet of flowers. The service has been held annually since 1890 and has rated national attention. For over the last 60 years the Clark Rotary Club has organized this service.
