“How can I do what’s never been done before?” That’s the question Yadina asks when she realizes there’s never been a female President. This is a vital question right now for millions of girls (and boys). And so, in the Xavier Riddle movie, she goes back in time to meet FOUR women who have done what no one has ever done before, including Sally Ride, Amelia Earhart, and this woman, Jackie Joyner-Kersee. One of the greatest highlights of working on the film was spending time with her. This is the moment when she first saw her cartoon version by Chris Eliopoulos. So now, it’s time to inspire your own kids. Set your DVR for Xavier Riddle and the Secret Movie: I am Madam President — premiering tomorrow, Monday, on PBS KIDS and the PBS Kids app. If you believe in our mission, please share this and tell other people about it. See you all in the Secret Museum.

We’re excited about the possibilities!

We’ve had a lot of questions about what can be done to save the former bridge tender’s house located on the riverfront. The Chamber has actually been working on this issue for quite some time with Union Pacific and BNSF railroads, who jointly own the property. The plan is to move it to the Atchison Rail Museum and rehab it as soon as both property owners give it to the Chamber for the museum.

Taking the train for the holidays or have you in the past?! Share your holiday train story with us!

The Pullman Company of Chicago ran this paper advertisement that came from a 1949 magazine and features their passenger train. Pullman shows you a woman in her roomette during a 500-mile trip, people boarding the train, a man having dinner, and a family enjoying the passenger car. #railroad #trains
