Bruce Hochberger has been elected and ratified as the new Division Director.

From the Director.

At the Ames Board Meeting, Charlie Getz mentioned an idea to help find people interested in learning more about Model Railroading.

His idea! A 4" diameter red button with white lettering stating

"Ask Me About Model Railroading."

The buttons could be worn at train shows, swap meets or other events. We will take a quick poll to check for interest and forward our estimate of the number needed. They will collect the input and get bids for producing the batch. This won't commit the Division to a purchase, they are trying to judge the interest.
