NRHS Happenings for the former Depot Foundation crew
« on: November 09, 2012, 10:38:16 AM »
Just to simplify things, I'll quote myself from RYPN;
"The clerk for the ARS helped me by putting the word out on my chapter project, and Phil Johnson of Seven Railroads NRHS emailed me in the hopes I could help him with ideas on how to properly organize the chapter, which he admited had no real direction. After an email discussion, I recieved an email from him where he stated that the majority of the current membership had come to a consensus that they wished me to take over their chapter."
This is in regards to the depot project I was a part of in East Brookfield. Our original intent was to preserve the damaged Boston and Albany depot in East Brookfield. Suffice to say we failed miserably. The RYPN thread is linked below. On a different note, I've really noticed how much of a "geekwad" I was when I first started with the original effort. I'll note I'm lucky I had some people who were willing to provide guidance...

Edit: I forgot to note that the meeting to finalize all of this is Saturday, December 8, 2012 at the Steaming Tender in Palmer.

Am I correct in understanding that you are trying to organize a chapter of the NRHS? If so, can you provide more details? Thanks!

Originally it was the plan to establish a new chapter of the NRHS to replace the Depot Foundation. However, the discussion I had with Phil Johnson (current president of the Seven Railroads Chapter) led to the consensus amongst the members that I'm the person they want in charge of their chapter. I guess I should have been more clear originally!
