This is your invitation to Morse Day on April 27 between 12 noon and 4 PM at Boyce depot, rain or shine.   If you haven't visited the 1913 former N&W Railway depot along Clarke County route 723 in the past, please check Mapquest or your GPS for directions to 117 East Main Street, Boyce, VA 22620.
Mike Cizek, Chris Hausler, Abram Burnett, and other telegraphers will demonstrate the original information superhighway.  "DK" office will be connected to the Morse hub and communicating with other telegraph offices around the USA.  If you're a "lightning slinger," you can have a seat in the operator's chair and do the same.
Throughout the afternoon, Bob Cohen will be the grilling chef du jour.  Sodas, hot dogs, and beef burgers will be available with compliments of the RMS Library.  Please bring a side or dessert item which do not require refrigeration in a disposable container to share.

Ground-level restroom facilities will be available at 127 East Main Street, adjacent to the depot.  If it is not raining, please visit a yard sale at that location which was the former telephone exchange office for Boyce until 1968.

Hoping to see you there!
