PROGRAMS and EVENTS

For our GSoF Club


>>> October/November, 2018 happenings:
  • Several of our members will participate in the NMRA Piedmont Division's "Piedmont Pilgrimage." Please verify the dates/times on the NMRA Piedmont Pilgrimage website.
    This member will have an open house (layouts) on this day:
    Dan Berman - Sunday November 18th


    >>> December, 2018 happenings:
  • Friday December 14th. The annual Christmas/Holiday Party had to be moved to a new location, as Betty Cole is still recouperating from her injuries. At the November 9th meeting the Membership decided that we would invoke "Plan B" and have the gathering at the church room (where we meet the other 11 months of the year.) Come! Bring a dish of finger-food (or as Dan's wife said: HEAVY Hors d'oeuvres) to share. Your Club will provide ice, soft drinks, plates, knives & forks and cups.
