      Garden Railroad News Website Now Up!

      We now have an established Garden Railroad News website where people may download the eNewsletter as well as obtain more information about our initiative. It was designed in and is hosted by SquareSpace and is independent of any single club, reflecting the collaborative multi-club nature of our initiative.

      Check us out and enjoy.

      Thanks,

      Todd

      Todd,  I enjoyed reading your first newsletter.  Great job!  It looks very professional, is full of great information, beautiful photographs and lots of fun garden railroad stuff.  Thank you so much for putting this together and sharing it with us.  I will look forward to your second edition.   Mark

      Thanks guys.  Appreciate the kind words.  Wasn't a "waste" if you enjoyed it.

      Loved it.  How do I get it automatically, or do I have to remember to?  What is contribution to keep it going?  Loved Tom's railroad.  That is the basic way I would love to do once we get relocated to Durango.

      Mickey Likes It..., Hey Mickey!  Thanks for the kind words.

       

      If you belong to a Club that has elected to receive it on a regular basis, you will get it through your Club.

       

      For those who are not in a "Member Club," the ability just to receive the Newsletter was my "pet concern" that I fought for and was successful in implementing.

       

      I am of the mind that there should be a provision for "Members at Large" who do not belong to a Club, but want to receive the newsletter on a regular basis, and in the future, also submit articles for possible inclusion.  Hence, the question in my survey, "Would you be willing to provide an email address as a point of contact?"

       

      I'll put this before the Task Force again, and perhaps it could happen in the future.

       

      Thanks,

       

      Todd

      Our 'Regional Coordinators' continue to reach out to clubs. Outdated contact info in a list sourced from Garden Railways is making it hard to reach about a quarter of the 100+ clubs in the US. So, a reminder!
      If you are a club member and have NOT heard about GRNews from your club, please send contact info for your club to us at simplygrenews@gmail.com so we can update our club database.
      Thank you!
