At 7 PM on Friday, November 20, I will be making a presentation about Washington, DC-area Railway Post Office routes at a meeting room in the George Washington National Masonic Memorial which is across Callahan Drive from the Alexandria, Virginia, Union Station. All are welcome to attend; there is no admission fee and it is open to the public. This is a monthly meeting of the Washington Chapter, National Railway Historical Society.
Also, please circle Saturday, April 30, 2016, on your calendar. There will be a Morse Day demonstration at Boyce depot between noon and 3 PM, as well as a cook out. More details will follow in a March 2016 reminder.
