Welcome to New Members John & Diane Sievers

November 19, 2012 – We are pleased to welcome new ILSR members from Carmel, Indiana – John and Diane Sievers. They heard about us at Watts; they must have been shopping there, they are planning a layout. Glad to have you aboard, folks, and hope you will join us at our future events. The ILSR modular train display at the fairgrounds on January 5, 6, 2013 would be a good place to start. We will look forward to seeing you there!
