Jim Fox is no stranger to doing volunteer work for Falmouth. He has served as a member of the town’s planning board, EDIC (economic development and industrial corporation) and beach committee and as a Town Meeting member, so it’s no surprise that since the town acquired a 100-year lease on the Falmouth train station, which currently serves as a hub for the Peter Pan bus lines and houses the Station Grille, that Mr. Fox and the rest of the board have been working on ways to promote the station and raise its profile in town.
Along with other members of the EDIC, Mr. Fox was instrumental in creating the nonprofit Friends of Falmouth Station. All members of the EDIC are on the board of the Friends group, which is responsible for the maintenance of the station going forward.
“We want to run social events at the station and help market the location as a public space for meetings,” Mr. Fox said.
