Announcements

 

From the President's corner.....

Oh my, it is November already, where did the summer go?

It was good to see all of you at the summer events and we hope you enjoyed them. The Third Sunday Roundtables have been good and if you missed Paul Pitzer and Van May, you missed a great one. Dave Hare does his homework and asks all the right questions. It is fun to see Van make Lynn Paxton stumble for words!.

The new addition is coming along nicely and you can keep up on the progress right here on our website or on the EMMR Facebook Group.

Sunday, November 6th was another enjoyable day at the hands of Stan Lobitz. There was a good group of vendors, Don Robinson had a good variety of items for auction, and a crowd of EMMR followers to watch the vintage movies.

  Dave Hare , as always, was a great emcee, and the interviews of Don Kimberling, Billy Wentz, Mike Gilispie and the heartwarming story of Duane Maustellen and his recovery from his accident at Selinsgrove along with his father Randy, made for a great afternoon. As you know Lynn Paxton orchestrates the whole day and always does a great job.

 After the movies and auction we had a great meal served by Stan's people who did a great job. I want to thank all the volunteers who helped to make this day possible as without you it would not happen.  So until next year we hope to see you back again in 2017.

December 3rd and 4th is this years Holiday Open House here at the museum, with Saturday being Darwin Doll and the drag cars and Sunday will be Gary Wolford, so please plan to attend those events.

Of course the museum closed last Sunday but will still be open Fridays all winter, weather permitting.  Our cleanup nights will begin January 5 and continue every Thursday night thru March. Come out to help and make new friends , as you  know we survive on volunteers!

   Stay tuned!!


Till next time,
Nancy
