The all-volunteer Olympia-Lacey Centennial Amtrak station is being featured on NBC Nightly News on Friday.

The Yelm Highway station has been run entirely by volunteers since 1993. We took a look at their work when we visited for the station’s 20th anniversary.

Anyone who wants to watch the show can tune in to KING-TV (Channel 5) at 6 p.m.
