Monthly Club Meeting and Annual Auction Report
By Mark J. Sullivan
At the March 3rd monthly club meeting, the annual club auction was held after a short business meeting, but it was then decided to do a swap meet format, rather than the usual auction style of proceedings, and see if that would generate more sales and interest. I brought out a couple of trainers, that I had just that day acquired, to try to see if anyone was interested in them for personal, or club member usage, along with various other building items, engines, parts, tools and vintage equipment that I've acquired along the way in my short time in this great hobby.

The meeting and subsequent swap meet were well attended I thought, and I sold a few small items and donated some excess items to fellow club members in need, that I had brought with me to the sale.
