The 2017 Durand Railroad Days Festival is well underway, and it began extra early this year. The festival's new midway provider, Big Rock Amusements, opened up rides to early risers on Thursday morning, with two free solid hours of free fun! And there were plenty of patrons that chose to take advantage of this pretty incredible deal -- a one time chance to ride for free, from 6 to 8am on Thursday morning.
Big Rock Amusements brings fresh and exciting midway rides not seen before at Railroad Days, along with several traditional favorites.
We ventured down early (but not as early as some) this morning to snap some pics. Have a look at our gallery below, which also includes a few photos shared with Durand Now by Railroad Days early morning free riders.
SageLink Credit Union customers ran into problems with their cards on Tuesday afternoon when all customers' cards were deactivated in error as part of a rollout of new chip cards. SageLink issued the following statement shortly after 7pm on Tuesday evening:
SageLink debit cards have all been reactivated. We apologize for any inconvenience that this has caused our members. Even though the EMV chip card conversion has had a rocky start, SageLink Credit Union would like to assure our members that chip cards are being introduced in their best interest. SageLink is always striving to ensure security and efficiency for our members.
