The Color Country Model Railroad Club refurbished a small model railroad last year (2013).  This display railroad was shown at the Jubilee of Trees in November, a fund raiser for the Hospital.  It was offered for sale at the Jubilee auction and was sold for $5000.  which made a nice contribution to the fund raiser.

We were asked to provide another  HO model railroad this year that could also be auctioned at the Jubilee.  This small (4x8) railroad is underway.  The club meets every Tuesday afternoon at 2:00 to work on this railroad.  Individual member of the club have been assigned to build structures for this railroad.  You are invited to come and participate.  If you would like to construct a building please come on Tuesday and we will provide you with a kit.

Please contact Dave Merrill (435 656-3449) or Doug Whetstone (435 275-5251)
if you would like to participate in this charity project.  Meetings are at 164 West 100 South St. George.  In building at the end of the driveway.

The club was also asked to build a model railroad for the veterans home in St. George.  The Lionel members of the club are building a Lionel railroad for this project.  Please contact Terry Schramm (435 573-6064) for details and if you would like to participate.

This is a wonderful project and way for the club to contribute to our community.  It is also a good way for us to join together in a cooperative effort.

NMRA CCMRC Annual BBQ

Our next activity is our annual BBQ at Jim Harper's home June 7 at 10:00 am.  Hamburgers, hot dogs, and other BBQ delicacies and drinks will be furnished by the club.  Please plan to bring a salad or other side dish to accompany the BBQ or bring a desert.  We look forward to seeing you.

There will not be regular club meetings during July and August.  Regular meetings will resume in September.

In the mean time we are building a small display railroad for charity.  This railroad will be auctioned at the Festival of Trees to raise money for the hospital.  If you did not get the letter from Dave on the details of this project please contact him at 435 656-3449  or 435 760-0419 or ATSGRR@gmail.com and he will send the details to you.

Even though there will not be regular club meetings during the summer months there will be work days on the project railroad.  Watch this space for announcements of these work sessions.  In the mean time individuals who are working on the project will have access to the project on their schedule so that the work can be done as members of the club have time to work.

Thanks for your support of this project.  This is a wonderful way to promote the club and the hobby of model railroading.
