On August 20, 2014 Roger Marquis, Chief Development Officer, received a donation for Penn-Mar Human Services from Steam Into History in New Freedom, PA. Steam Into History raised funds for Penn-Mar during the July 19th Jesse James Train Robbery ride. Riders watched as Jesse James and his gang had a staged gun fight and robbery (for charity) on the train. They held up the riders, allowing them to hand over fake jewels or cash that would be donated to Penn-Mar. Steam Into History raised $225 for Penn-Mar Human Services.
