Cleaning the 227 (L to R: Greta Schauer, Carter Mavec, Tessa Schauer)

The annual Clean Team event yesterday drew some nice press in the Duluth News Tribune. There were some additional photos that appeared in the print version. A big thank you to all the volunteers that were able to help out!


2012 Important Dates


A few dates to make note of in 2012.

The first is our annual clean team at the LSRM on Saturday, May 19. More info will be coming out on this but as is tradition we will meet at the depot at 10A on that day and clean equipment then have lunch. Also, Gene Clark will be looking for a handful of volunteers to help that afternoon in the archives at Two Harbors (you can RSVP to him directly as we get closer)

The second date is our annual convention to be held the weekend of August 3-4-5 on the Range (exact site TBD).

In addition, our next MRHS Board Meeting will be held on April 14.
