Hello everybody!
 I don't know if it is the right section of this forum to express myself. If not , I apologize for the wrong turn and kindly request Ed, the forum conductor, to switch my post into the right bay.
How time flies! It's a year since I joined the WW&F and it's about time I renewed my membership. But beforehand, I'd like to tell you how much I enjoyed that first year and how rewarding it was.
Through the on-time newsletters, the almost daily updated fb and this newsy discussion forum,day after day I've been following the association exciting adventures and admiring all the feats of engeneering the volunteers achieved and God knows how many there were over the past twelve months. I've met the staunch, dedicated , friendly volunteers that everyday, rain or shine, work for the revival of that two-footer on the ground and backstage. I tremendously admire your great sense of organization and the skill and cleaverness you use to preserve all the historical aspects of that railway.
I'd like to thank you for all those inspiring moments I have spent along with you and for the freindly welcome, the family have given to that distant relative, throughout the year.
I'd like to let you know ,as well, that my membership has enabled me to merge my life-long passion for the railroad with my twelve years old one for american english.
I consider the WW&F Ry museum the prove that the pioneer spirit still exsists in the US. As this spirit has enabled your ancestors to build RR tracks to conquest the Wild West, it will enable the association to reach Albion someday.
 I look forward to that day but by then, I'd like to keep on going thru your thrilling adventures on the ROW and on Sheepscot campus.So it's the reason why I'm going to renew my membership for life.
Best regards you all.

I received this email:

"a few notes from past years.

Back in the 1980s I was approached by a gentleman who had an idea to start an organization to create the WW and F. He then asked to speak to my organization the Damariscotta Rotary club, I thought the idea was very interesting and set him up for the next week, his discussion brought down the house. I was the first to donate and become a charter member (CM3).

I have been following the progress since the beginning, I was the owner of Clark’s Cove farm and sold it a number of years later, but I continued to follow it’s progress, and it has been amazing as I try to visit each year. When I come home to my home state of Maine after being away for 65 years and I donate when I can afford it, you and associates have done an amazing job and I am proud to have been a charter member.

Respectfully, Just Wold - presently living in Scottsdale Arizona"
