Chapter Business Meeting – Jan 19, 2022

WM CHAPTER BUSINESS MEETING ON JAN. 19 will be held at 7 PM in the Cumberland Railroad Museum at 17 Howard Street among the shops at Canal Place in Cumberland MD. Nearest parking is available in the area beneath the Inter-state Route 68 bridge on the north side of Howard Street, opposite the historic Footer’s Dye Works building. Parking space is free on a first-come basis. Be careful when crossing Howard Street because motor vehicles do not always fully stop at the bot-tom of the ramp for westbound Exit 43B.
President Tom Biery will present his annual ad-dress on the current conditions of the Western Maryland Chapter NRHS and its goals for 2022.
Among the items of business to consider are approval of new members and the proposed budget for 2022. Other items will include planning the programs for social meetings and finishing the work of completely securing the historic heavyweight passenger railcar that is now in the WMSR Yard at Ridgeley, West Virginia. One major action for the coming year is continuing to develop the new Cumberland Railroad Museum among the shops at Canal Place into a significant attraction. All chapter members should come and share their thoughts and recommendations about future activities for the Western Maryland Chapter NRHS.
