After 26 Depot Cafe
Unique Gifts

Unsung Hero

Unsung heroes abound at the After 26 Depot Cafe. We have had so many volunteers over the past several years, and people continue to step up in countless ways. We are forever grateful for their many contributions.  

Among the volunteers is Bob Swiger. He has graciously installed our brick pavers each time a new order comes in. He was at the Depot recently installing the latest collection of pavers. Among the installed bricks was one purchased in Bob's honor by the After 26 Board of Directors.  

Stop by the Depot sidewalk and see the tremendous collection of brick pavers, all effectively supporting the After 26 Project.  Thank you so much for all you do Bob!

Go to the Donate page to see how you can purchase a brick paver!

Great food, great service, great atmosphere.
