Guys,Thanks for your words of kindness and offer to help.Now after much thought I thought I would share with you the other things we do to give back to the community.Understand I am NOT blowing our whistle but,hopefully passing on some ideas that other clubs may wish to follow.. 1.Every year we have a open house for Easter seals,all proceeds go to that cause. 2.We have a op till you drop for Jerry's kids(MDA).We go out and find spondsers for us to run trains.They pay the hours a given member operates on the layout,yes,this has gone on for 24 hours at times the record being 28hrs 12 minutes. 3.We have a local open house for the red cross food bank,the admission is can food. This is held early November. 4.Our next local open house is the "Toys For Tots". Admission is a new or use toy in good shape ... Friends,If you are in a club I urge you and your club to do the something to help your community like the Red Cross,MDA and such like.It will cost nothing but your time... Merry Christmas to all and may God bless you and yours!
