the chapter, but have not done all the leg work to come up with  costs, suppliers etc. In addition to ideas for fund raising, we  need volunteers who are willing to actually do the work.

Goals for 1999:
What goals should we set for next year? Should we send a younger  member to the NRHS Railcamp? Gene has the details on the cost.  Should we donate to the 494 Restoration? Should we bank roll the  money so that we can buy merchandise to sell? (We are short about  $300 to pay for a run of post cards). Please voice your opinion!

We should also prepare a brochure telling about the chapter and  our activities. This could be distributed at the caboose and at  shows. Right now we only have the application out, and it says  nothing about what we do.

Another thought is to have a Chapter excursion. It could be as  simple as taking Amtrak to Bellows Falls and return, with the  option of continuing to Amherst. Or we could charter a coach on  the Green Mountain, or other line. These could bring money into  the Chapter rather than using money.

Anyone interested in organizing a trip or event should get the  information and make a proposal at our meeting.
