The Society had a table display at the Kirkwood, MO station for Rail Safety Day on May 7, 2016. In the photo, below, we see Rene' LaVoise, Vice-President and David Huelsing, Director & Archivist on duty. They reported that it was a very successful event.
Here is another look at the merchandise and information that was available on our table.
Company Store Update
We have several new items listed on the website and some on eBay. Please, take time to browse the Store pages and see what is available. We now have a weekly specials category. Be sure and take a look. Don't miss out on that bargain. There is also a new category that showcases new items for a limited time. Be sure to check it out.
We can now take credit cards, without a companion PayPal account, for payment on merchandise and memberships. We still use PayPal to complete the transaction, but a PayPal account is not required. Please review the details on the main Company Store page if you would like to use this new payment feature.
Make plans to attend next year's convention in Jefferson City, MO. New information has been added to the convention page. Here's the link: 2016 Convention.
The Summer 2016 issue of The Eagle magazine has gone to press. It should be delivered within a few weeks. Be sure and check the renewal date on the address insert that came with your last issue. If your subscription ended with the Spring 2016 (2016:1) issue, you need to renew, NOW. Don't delay. Our production runs do not allow for a large number of extra issues. You could potentially miss an issue.
