Presidents Report:

This summer, June we will do the TCA convention at the Windom Hotel June 28, 29 and 30.  The club will most likely pay parking expenses.

We will not participate in the summer Greenberg show.

Warren will try to arrange another visit to scenic express soon.

Current slate of officers was confirmed for another year.  Dues will remain at $35 for 2017.

Bill Baldwin showed photos of the Historical Society remodeling project.


Treasurers Report:

The treasury remains in good shape. Dues of $35 for 2017 were collected.  The club will reimburse for parking at the Windom.



Rich Auber has complete scenery on the 18 module.  He also showed screwdrivers that hold the screw in place for easy starting and blocks representing FREMO modules which would let us adapt to two track main line.

          Jeff has an O gauge Lionel diesel freight available for a good home.  He also showed flexible mixing bowls for easy clean-up and a wheel bearing polisher available from Micro-Mart.
