December 2010 Business Meeting


After dinner, Keith Baggus, outgoing president, reflected on his term as president and on some of the year's activities.

Keith mentioned the new reward system that was described in the December newsletter along with a picture of the reward, a Track Cleaning Locomotive. It begins in 2011 for participation at club shows, in hosting meetings and for transporting the club trailer. Details will be on the web site.  A drawing from all member's earned tickets throughout the year will be held at the Dec 2011 dinner to award the winner.

Treasurer, Ann Celento, reported the club’s end of year financial data as of that date. A comprehensive final report will be put on the web site after the end of the year.

Keith announced that the winter 2011 Greenberg Train Show, that was going to be held  in February 2011, has been changed to January 22, 2011. The club decided, by an almost unanimous vote, to not participate in January due to recent low participation, the possibility of severe weather and the shortness of time to prepare.

Ballots were handed out for the 2011 election of officers.  Officers elected were President: Jan Vogt, Vice Presidents: Paul Stewart, Jim Schwarz, Treasurer: Ann Celento, and Secretary: Sondra Wiggins.

The following members were recognized for their years of participation in PGRS. 5 Year Pins: Bill & Jill Fallecker, John & Sondra Wiggins; 15 Year Pins: Ann & Ed Celento.
 The Falleckers, Wiggins and Celentos were present to receive their pins.
