Visitors enjoyed a nice array of models at our "Worlds in Miniature" event July 18. Exhibits included operating steam engines, ships, trains, autos, and antique cast iron fire equipment, as well as member Don Shilling’s detailed scenic modules. Our thanks go to Leroy Blades (and the Genesee & Ontario Model-N-Gineers), Randy Bogucki, Lew Gracey, Gaylon Louth, Alan and Alex Reinnagle, Harold Russell, and Don Shilling for making this event a success.

That tiny thing in front of Gaylon Louth’s beautifully crafted
USS Missouri is a UP Big Boy in the same scale as the ship!



The busy summer season is upon us, and the need for volunteer help is here too. Will you give us a hand? We need help in staffing the Gift Shop and ticket desk, jobs that are fun and varied, letting you greet and interact with our visitors.

Please give us a call. For help in the Gift Shop, please call Marie Miner at 671-3589; for other volunteer opportunities, call Jim Dierks at 473-5508. Thank you!
