We celebrate our absolutely wonderful volunteers once a year. The depot is the jewel of Tehachapi, but our awesome volunteers makes it one of the best places to visit in Tehachapi. They are all warm and welcoming to our visitors from any part of the the world. Thank you so much to all of you. The Friends of the Tehachapi Depot (FOTD), who manages the Depot, appreciates all of you.
The photos are from the April 23, 2019 celebration, of course we will have one ASAP to honor our volunteers, especially after the issues with Covid-19.
