Davis Open House

On Sat October 13, Don and Norma Davis opened their backyard to many ILSR members.  The weather was bright and sunny but cool (50’s). The cookies and hot apple cider punch was just the ticket to enjoy the afternoon.  Early in the day, the local town went to the dog, but all survived .

If you didn’t come to the Poor’s Open House today, you missed a rare treat…

The Franklin Street Garden Railway  …” the chipmunk line” was started in 1994.  Bill has made many upgrades over the years and has created a spectacular visual with all the appropriate toys to make everyone present drool!!! The landscaping and treats were superb and everyone enjoyed the wonderful weather … Thanks to the Poor’s for a memorable  afternoon.
