Did it have two lanterns in it? If so, the answer is yes.

Last night at the Wiscasset Area Chamber of Commerce's 5th annual member dinner, the Museum received a Growth and Development Award. The text on the award reads; " The Growth and Development Award recognizes the accomplishments of an organization which contributes to the economic, social and/or cultural well-being of the Wiscasset area, demonstrating community involvement and the spirit of volunteerism."

I'll be there Saturday but on Sunday, I'll be at the Thompson Ice cutting in S. Bristol, as seen on page 8b of this week's LCN. I can be there on Monday, though.

Museum Discussion / Fred Morse's birthday
« on: January 29, 2016, 05:57:20 PM »
He's probably going to kick my ass for making this widely known but the fact remains that Saturday, January 30th, 2016 is Fred's 80th birthday. Those of you who are regular volunteers and know Fred well will need no introduction. For the rest of you; Fred is one of the stalwarts of the organization. He is our biggest cheerleader, probably more responsible for new volunteers than anyone else. He is often referred to as the "Energizer Bunny" as his enthusiasm and energy are legendary. I used to joke that I hoped I would have his energy when I was his age but the fact is that I don't , nor do most of the rest of us, have it now. His skills and dedication are admirable in and of themselves but what endears him to all of us, me especially, is the way he conducts himself with self effacing good humor, always. So please join me in wishing the happiest of birthdays to Fred.


Work and Events / Re: Victorian Christmas 2015

Whew! Another Victorian Christmas under our belt and arguably the best one, yet. Our fifteenth year but notable for a number of firsts. A record 1558 passengers were carried. Three separate trains run. Two steam locomotives in operation.

Anyone involved in an event of this size knows that it doesn't just happen. A tremendous amount of preparation by a dedicated group of volunteers spent weeks ahead of time prepping and planning. Kudos are due Jason Lamontagne for an operating plan that worked perfectly and kept wait times to a minimum. Brendan Barry for caboose haulage and flatcar benches. Brian Fanslau for use of his caboose. Joe Fox and Stewart Rhine for publicity. Linda Verney for the last minute addition of another horse drawn wagon when we looked to have a high turnout.

Finally, thanks go to all the volunteers who turned out on the day, 60 at last count (Mrs. Claus and I didn't get to sign in until this morning.). It was truly an "all hands on deck" effort and it couldn't have been done without you. I'm proud to be associated with you all.

Merry Christmas

We also want to repair the damage done to the southeast corner of the shop/car barn building by a snowplow. Also, if the ground is walkable on the east side of the new car barn, the staging has to be raised to the new working height. The cleats are already in place. The planking just has to be lifted. All in all, there should be plenty of projects to keep everyone busy.

Due to the expected snow/ice/rain conditions predicted for Saturday, the truss raising party has been rescheduled for Dec. 13th, once again, weather permitting.
