August 4th and 5th Atoona PA:
You get to see other clubs from all over the area with different ideas.  

25th anniversary:
Do we want to invite all the clubs. Do we want t-shirts or a pin. We could pay half for the T-shirts. Frank fells we should pay for any T-shirt. We could get a tent for eating. This would give us more room for a layout. Do we want to advertise that we are running a show for the weekend? Who should we invite – Brooklyn, Southern, Connecticut, Keystone, Union? Do we want a t-track layout?  
Bob will go to Frank’s house Monday and Tuesday to build modules. Other people may come also.

June 10th in the 4H building. They have a nice program for the kids. We were invited. We have the basement layout that could be used for this kind of display.

Union Meeting:
June 16th invitational. If you want to run trains, you would be better off going on a Tuesday night.

Fathers day not good. 300$ cost. $8 per adult. Made $200 for the church. Bacon eggs pancakes. potatoes. Make order forms. croissants. blueberry and banana pancakes. Sausage. In the past we did a buffet. We should do portion control and serve. September would be a good time. We would have it around the church service. We would not do this during the car show as they have their own food for sale. In the past we did not advertise. 2nd weekend in September. Frank will check with Gary to get his perspective. We could advertise. Now Facebook is available and we could make fliers.
