Hartmann’s Railroad Museum
On September 29, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. club members are invited to go to Intervale, New Hampshire, a short distance from North Conway, to visit the Hartmann’s Railroad Museum and Restaurant.
The fee of $20 each will include a meal at the restaurant and allow entrance into the museum.
There is also an extensive hobby shop attached to the restaurant. Several years ago Larry Cannon donated an item which was added to the model railroad museum.
This is another opportunity to share model railroading experiences set up by Activities Director, Brenda Leslie.

Spaghetti Dinner Fundraiser
In an attempt to raise money for our treasury, a spaghetti supper is planned for 5 o’clock before the regular monthly meeting on Thursday, September 20.
The $5 each charge is less than one would pay at a restaurant and it will beneﬁt the club at the same time. As part of the supper, members are asked to bring a dessert or salad to share.
After the supper and a brief business meeting, club members Roger Plummer, Dick Clark, and Terry King will show slides as entertainment for the evening.
We are always looking for ways to help ﬁnancially support the club. This is another way we can work together and get to know our train mates at the same -me. This is a lot more fun than raising dues.
