Superintendentís Page - June, 2023

Members at the April business meeting elected Mike Munts of Colville, WA as Assistant Superintendent, and I was elected Superintendent. Dan Figy of Spokane will continue to serve as Chief Clerk, and Dick Smith of Hamilton, MT, will continue as Paymaster in 2023. Peter Armstrong ended his service in May, with the thanks of our members for his service.

The 5th Division will be hosting the PNR Convention in 2025, in the Tri-Cities, and the convention committee will include Bill Fassett as Convention Chair, myself as Vice-Chair, Shirley Sample as Treasurer, Lori Sebelley as Registrar, Phil Miller as Layout Tour chair, John Decker as Contest chair, Tracy Stutler as Clinic Chair, and Mike Tietz will coordinate Free-mo layouts. Watch your email for opportunities over the next year and a half to join the committee.

Three new Master Model Railroaders were announced from the 5th Division at the PNR Convention in Tacoma in May. Congrats to John Decker, MMR (Kennewick), Bob Jekel, MMR (Kennewick) and Rick Martin, MMR (Coeur díAlene)!

We plan to have more frequent opportunities for our members in the coming year, starting with a Free Run at 4:00 pm and a free Clinic at 6:00 pm on locomotive maintenance on June 29 at River City Modelers. Members received an announcement in their in-boxes.

Please let me know how your officers and I can enhance the value of your NMRA membership!
