On September 9, 2013, our beloved President of the Tamaqua Save Our Station, Kenneth A. Smulligan passed away. His greatest gift was saving the station from demolition. Through his hard work and dedication this Tamaqua landmark was saved. It will forever be a major attraction in the center of Tamaqua. He will sadly be missed by all of the Tamaqua S.O.S. officers & members.
