All Aboard Washington’s annual membership meeting will be on November 8 from 1 p.m.-4:00 p.m. in the community room at the Centralia Amtrak Station. We suggest lunch on your own before the meeting at McMenamin’s landmark Olympic Club directly across Railroad Ave from the station or other nearby establishments.
Speakers include Kirk Fredrickson, WSDOT Rail Division and Dan McFarling of the Assoc. of Oregon Rail and Transit Advocates.
Our meeting will feature AAWA’s silent auction, returning after skipping 2013. Among the special items offered are several large-scale rail memorabilia, and overnight stay packages from two downtown Centralia establishments: McMenamin’s Olympic Club Hotel, and the newly developed Centralia Square Hotel, the repurposed Centralia Elks building. Both McMenamin’s and Centralia Square, along with Talgo, are sponsors of our meeting. Several donations are pending. We continue to look for additional quality items or services. Please contact Lloyd Flem (LloydFlem@allaboardwashington.org) or Jim Hamre (firstname.lastname@example.org) to donate. We will be able to accept credit cards for payment this year. Everyone is encouraged to attend and bid high for distinctive Holiday gifts.
Use our Northwest Corridor trains to and from the meeting.
