reporter Jill Fallecker here, reporting on recent activities
with the PGRS. Clark and Kathy Kemmerer hosted the PGRS on
Saturday, May, 16, 2009. They prepared a great lunch which was
added to by all the following members who attended:
Alycefaye and Paul Stewart
Christ (We hope Dee is feeling better now!)
||Shirley and Al
and Jim Schwarz
and Lois Bodnar
||Bill and Jill
discussed with Clark the nuts and bolts (and cost) of laying out
a loop of track in his beautifully manicured lawn. We expect he
and Kathy will be able to sit on their back deck and enjoy the
trains below in the very near future. With their determination
and enthusiasm we may also see many wonderful additions to the
main line as well as an incline to the lower level of the yard
in the future.
held a plant swap that day, too. Many members brought greens to
trade. It seemed just about everybody got something new to
plant. Even those who had no plants to start with ended up with
plants to take home because there were plenty to share. Carol
Schwarz commented that this was more than just a swap, it was an
opportunity to start a friendship garden. She was getting the
names of the people who gave her a plant. If members are
interested, we could try a “bulb swap” sometime in the fall.
was fickle on Saturday, but the PGRS members were lucky. We had
lunch, discussed Clark’s train layout, had a brief update of
club activities, and finished up our plant trading outside just
as raindrops started to hit the ground! Even the slow ones
among us were able to get to their vehicles without getting
wet. Talk about your timing...
your next opportunity for fun and fellowship with the PGRS will
be the train weekend in Cumberland, Maryland June 12 -14. The
following weekend is our planning session with Chuck and Dee
Christ (June 20, 2009). The next time you see Chuck and Dee be
sure to congratulate them on the sale of their other house, it’s
been a long time coming.
check the calendar for dates and times of other upcoming events.
train club members and spouses, see you on the rails next time.
If you, too, have an interest in being a reporter or scout for
the PGRS, feel free to write up any train related activities you
think we may be interested in. Your submissions will be
gratefully accepted by your president!
