Minutes for Aug. 28, 2016


Keith Baggus brought the meeting to order @ 3:45

Thank you to Frank and Jackie Magri for holding the meeting and supplying the tasty food for the entrees at the picnic.

28 members attended the yearly picnic and brought many wonderful dishes of food to fill out the menu.

The 50/50 was won by Keith Baggus and presented to Frank and Jackie Magri to defer the cost of the food and paper supplies.

Train Collectors Association (T.C.A.) has been sent our application and a YouTube video of the P.G.R.S. Keith is to contact them and let us know when the next planning session will be held.

Tina Weimer will chair the next meeting at Clark Kemmerer’s.

Dave Bodnar requested that all newsletter items be to him by Oct. 25.

Lee Brandes suggested that we invite people to our meetings and that we reestablish a work day program in the club to help people with their layout.

Alycefaye Stewart suggested members work on a layout plan for the T.C.A. layout. 24’ X 24’.

Tina Weimer reported that the raffle at Brownsville made $177. The cost was $73. Barry Baker won the raffle and donated the train back to the club for the raffle at the Castle Shannon show on Oct. 30th.

John Weimer suggested that we could do layout for T.C.A. in basement at Brownsville. The Castle Shannon layout will be 24’ x 24’ (Called them…we are now doing a 20’ X 24’ because of our new rug sizes)

Keith Baggus requested that we bring all the refurbished buildings that we inherited from Bill Patterson to Brownsville.

Frank and Jackie Magri are donating a Baughman Big Haller Train Set for a raffle at the T.P.A. convention next year.
