Meeting Updates due to Covid-19

The expanding health crisis in the US has led me to cancel all JRD events until September.  Our next meeting will be September 12 in Charlottesville.  The annual meeting is postponed until that event and the officers will continue to serve until that time.  The boxcar building group project will be delayed and it will be rescheduled once the current crisis clears.  Please be safe and hopefully we will all see each other again this September.

Next Meeting is Farmville


Folks our next meeting is in May in Farmville.  We all hope that we will be through the current health crisis by that time so the officers will plan for it.  It looks to be a good meeting though I am still short one clinic.  If you are up to giving one of 30 minutes please let me know.  We will have our postponed annual meeting including election of officers at that time.

Next Meeting?

The quickly evolving situation has forced not only many cancellations of meetings such as yesterdays James River Division meeting but many meetings through the end of April.  The officers of the JRD and their counterparts at the MER will keep you abreast of the impact of events on our scheduled meetings.

In the meantime we can use the downtime of self isolation to good use.  More time building the layout or models at the workbench.  I made a quick dash into Rail Tales to pick up some supplies and I know they or which ever supply place is close to you is still open or can ship to you what you need for your next project.

Enjoy the time and stay safe.

March 14th JRD Meeting cancelled

The James River Division meet for Saturday March 14, 2020 is cancelled.  We will try to reschedule at a future time.  The next meeting is May 9, 2020 in Farmville.  The Annual Meeting of the membership of the JRD will be held at the Farmville meeting in May.

During this trying time please be safe and follow best practices of hygiene so we can all still get together in May and beyond.
