“Neither a wise man nor a brave man lies down on the tracks of history to wait for the train of the future to run over him.”
Dwight D. Eisenhower, President of the USA.

My evening was filled with tasty food and friendly conversation at the last meeting held at the Community Center. These benefits were the result of effort and time shared by several people under the leadership of Mary Fiorito. These were followed by a classic Agatha Christie movie. You can’t go too far from a good time when shared with great actors and a beautiful train.

We also had an unusual set of reports:
Vice President: No report
Secretary: Report in the newsletter
Treasurer: Lots of money
Membership: Lots of members . . .

I did say we had a good time! Thanks again to all who helped and shared good food.

Don’t forget that the next meeting will be held on May 20th. The reason is that we will be observing Memorial Day the weekend of the 27th, so don’t confuse the two.

Our presenter is Joe Genc on the topic “Manufacturing Our Hobby”.

Keep ‘em running,
