Seeking Candidates for FSR Board Member Positions
With our annual meeting and upcoming election cycle, we are now seeking candidates for several positions. These include President, Vice-President, Treasurer, Secretary, and 5 director-at-large positions. We have been without a secretary for several months. Our current treasurer, to whom we owe a great deal of gracious gratitude to, has informed us of their intention to retire at the end of her term. She stepped in to help keep our finances afloat after Ray became very ill and unfortunately passed away. If you or someone you know may be interested in helping us fill these two critically important roles, please let us know. To run for a board position, you only need be a member in good standing. Membership applications are available on our website.

Help Needed for Coach Restorations
We are off to a good start for the Summer 2023 equipment restoration season. Currently, two coaches are undergoing restoration work simultaneously, increasing the need for more helpers. Coach 1341 is receiving a roof-edge restoration, which includes volunteers removing rivet heads so a contract welder can weld in new patches. Coach 1158 is currently having the rest of the floor subfloor welded in. We are in need of painters, woodworkers, welding and sheet metal work workers. If you are interested in coming to our workdays, please give us a shout. We’d love to add you to our mailing list and see you come on out to help. No previous experience is necessary – we will train. The next Coach Workday is Sunday, June 4 at 9AM in the Stewartstown yard.
