MOW-MOW-MOW!!!!

On August 31st, Tom Nickle, Charles Lupinek, Ed Grubb, Dick Fountaine, Don Bodine, and Terry Bodine met at the

show grounds and mowed.  The R.R. club purchased (out of their treasury) a high wheel push mower to keep at theR.R. tracks.  The next mowing day will be on Thursday, September 23rd so the grounds will be ready for Fun Day. Please try to help.  The more mowers, the quicker it gets done.  Also if anyone can come and weed-eat around the club house it would look especially nice.

 

A NOTE FROM THE PRESIDENT.

As we start a new year, I’d like to thank all the out-going officers and directors for their support through-out the year and welcome in the new.  This year as your new president, I plan to schedule more directors meeting.  As our show grows, I believe more details can be attended to with more directors meetings.  This would free up our general meetings so we can have more time to socializ


I personally  want to thank all the exhibitors and vendors who stayed through Sunday to help us finish the show.  Due to the increasing size of our show, it’s easy to see the need to get pick-ups, cars, and trailers out of the exhibit areas and into the parking lots.  Loading and un-loading during the show needs to be out of the exhibit area also.  Thanks to Pete von Stein’s hard work, we now have a lane on the north side of the R.R. tracks to the parking lot..hope to see you there!  Meal at 2:00 P.M.
