A craft from Magnus.

Michael keeps us up to date on reading material (snowmen by Eric Harshbarger).

New Chairman Jim took his position seriously.

Guest Michael Collaco will be delivering the wreath constructed on the twenty-fourth to Timonium. No coordinator was identified for the Kena Temple Show in December and the host should be notified. Thank-you letters and volunteer surveys from Fall for Fairfax went to those volunteers who were at the event. Bob displayed the latest track plan and collected pledges of track for the Greenberg show next weekend. Do we have plans to replace the display at the National Toy Train Museum in 2005? Abe is making progress in having shirts embroidered with our logo and they should be ready by the next meeting. Some discussion of changes to or replacement of the Bylaws. The membership of two members in arrears was terminated by majority vote. A committee to revise the Bylaws was established under Article IV, Section 5 but the text of the resolution was not made public. Christina, Abe, Ken, Jim, Joe, and Todd are identified as members of the committee. We have a new member, Anthony Perez. Welcome!
