South Meeting Room
222 North Jefferson Street
Papillion, Nebraska 68046

The May Meeting will be held on Saturday, May 4th at the Sump Memorial Library in Papillion beginning at 9 am. George Sinos will be doing a presentation he is calling 'A Way To Do, or Not To Do Signals for a Siding.' If you have ever been at one of George's presentations you know that you are in for a treat.

Our 'Show n Tell' subject will be structures. Maybe there is a structure that you'd like to share but it's on your layout and you hate to 'dig it up' to bring. Maybe you could take some photos of it to bring instead.

Also, Ken Bean will give a presentation about a new project in Eastern Nebraska. It involves an historic prototype and model project.
