Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) cut cake and scooped ice cream during a ceremony to celebrate the volunteers who helped restore and now staff the Amtrak station in downtown Kirkwood.
“We are celebrating the best of this community, which are the kind people who decided this train station is worth saving,” McCaskill said. “It’s now recognized as one of the best train stations in the country.”
McCaskill also read a letter of thanks from Vice President, and vocal Amtrak supporter, Joe Biden.
