Q.I. of the Month



NOGRS is in the news again! WEWS, Channel 5 in Cleveland, came to see our
Special Wish presentation. Ralph says it for all of us...


A Special Wish for a Special Young Man

 













 

NOGRS is very blessed with all of our members with various talents and always with Love in their hearts. One of our outstanding members is Dale, the creator of our OSU Scoreboard that was a holiday hit. Well, he's outdone himself again by making a custom boxcar for Jack, our A Special Wish recipient. With this build coming up within two weeks, some of our members are starting to feel like Santa on Christmas Eve, all giddy with anticipation of the look in Jack's face. As things continue to develop, we will keep you informed via the Newsletter and emails! For more information about A Special Wish Foundation, click here.



Friends of NOGRS


As a Club, we have the awesome opportunity to work with some very special people. Sometimes, even those people surprise us with their caring attitudes and willingness to help. This is the case with our newest project: A Special Wish of "two trains running at the same time."

 

In appreciation, we would like to call out a few of our Friends: Reindeer Pass, Michael's Woodworking, Garden Railroading magazine, and USA Trains. These folks have gone above and beyond a simple donation, making us extremely proud to be associated with them.

 

Reindeer Pass reached out to USA Trains and secured a donation of TWO starter sets and a 10-amp power supply. Garden Railroading Magazine donated a magazine subscription and granted us permission to use an article on our website. Michael's Woodworking donated the wood to construct all the trestles. We have pictures of Michael hand delivering his Kansas items here.

 

In this day and age of corporate greed and "the need to stay lean," it is so heartwarming to see that companies can be caring and that it's not just about "the bottom line." All of the members of NOGRS take off our Conductor's Caps and salute you, our Friends.

 



Welcome Springtime!






The spring, summer, is quite a hectic time for people in their lives, but then it comes to autumn, and to winter, and you can't but help think back to the year that was, and then hopefully looking forward to the year that is approaching.
