The Sykesville Historic Preservation Commission decided last Tuesdayto spend its remaining money earmarked for the train station restoration on burying electrical wiring.

Chairwoman Rebecca Herman said the commission will pay to have an unsightly exterior electrical cable buried underground to try to add to the attractiveness of the building.

The group also is buying a plaque to be placed somewhere in the train station with a list of names of those who donated $1,000 or more to the restoration project.

The commission also scheduled its annual Strawberry Festival for June 8, at the Sykesville Town Hall. The event features fresh strawberries, ice cream sundaes and live music.

"We need volunteers for the festival," Herman said. "We need people to sell strawberries, help with the sundaes, be cashiers."

Anyone wishing to help with this activity can call Herman at 795-8511.

The commission meets at 7 p.m. the fourth Tuesday of eachmonth at the Town House.
