​From the President: 

Our May meet this month is on the 21st so mark your calendars so you don’t show up early or miss it all together.

The April meet was well attended and some nice trains came in the door. 

 We had a special guest in attendance and she spent the afternoon meeting her dad’s friends and hearing stories.  Jerry Roeder’s (64-998) daughter Amy joined us for the afternoon.  It was so nice to see the smile on her face as she listened to all of the train stories that played out during the last 45+ years.   Many members introduced themselves to her and shared a story.   Amy insisted on a picture and she shared it with me.
