Abe, Marian, and Christina agreed to lend their talents to the project to replace our display at the National Toy Train Museum in Strasburg, Pennsylvania, which has been in there for 2 years. The project to re-design the club’s web site has reached the point where all previous activities have been documented in some way. We must pass on the invitation to display at the Festival of Trees in Timonium, Maryland, later this month, but we’ll definitely keep it in mind for next year. Our special interest group for Trains, WamaLTC, will display at the TCA WB&A chapter meeting on Saturday, November 29th. As the alternating meeting day seems to have worked out for most people, we’ll stick with it for now. A representative from First LEGO® League arrived and sought volunteers. No new possible members are reported.
