Hello Fellow TCA Members,
On behalf of the TCA-Terminus Chapter, we hope that you all and yours are all well and doing good. We are sending this announcement out to remind you all of our upcoming Terminus Chapter Toy and Model Train Show this Saturday, September 23, 2017. We are having our Model Train Show at the Acworth VFW Post 5408 located at: 4764 Cobb Parkway NW, Acworth, GA 30101. Setup times are from 7:00am-9:00am, and the show hours are from 9:00am-2:00pm. We will have a brief business meeting at 9:00am and the show will begin immediately thereafter. You may refer to the www.dixiedivisiontca.com website for futher information regarding admission pricing and table prices if any of you all are still interested in getting tables for our Toy and Model Train Show. We still have some tables available to rent for this show. Do not mail in the registration form. Please call us if you would like a table and we will accommodate over the phone during this short time left beforehand. We have a passel of folks already committed from Alabama, Tennessee, and Georgia. Please make plans to join in the fun this Saturday, September 23, 2017.
Each of our Terminus Chapter model train shows are open to the general public. Therefore, please remember to inform your train buddies, friends, and neighbors about our TCA-Terminus Chapter Toy and Model Train Show. Each of us is an Ambassador of the TCA. There is no one better than each one of us to speak up about the benefits of being an active, outstanding, and participating TCA member. If you have not been to a TCA train show in a while, then try to make it this Saturday. If you have not seen one of your TCA buddies in a while, then please give them a call to meet you at the train show. Again, the best folks to talk up the TCA and our Toy and Model Train Show is each one of us. Please do your part, pick up the phone, talk it up, send some emails & text messages, get on social media, and spread the word. We appreciate.
Looking forward, our next TCA-Terminus Chapter Toy and Model Train Show will be at this same location in Acworth at the VFW Post 5408 on December 2, 2017. That day is to be celebrated as NATIONAL LIONEL TRAIN DAY. In keeping with our Terminus Chapter tradition, the Terminus Chapter will be buying the lunch of every TCA member who pre-registers with us for this event. We do this as an appreciation to our fellow TCA members who support the Terminus Chapter. What better time to share than during the Holidays!! Spouses, additional family members, and non-members will need to pay in advance. Keep an eye out for our December 2, 2017 Registration Form under Terminus Chapter Events & Registration at: www.dixiedivisiontca.com. Registration forms will be available this Saturday, September 23, for our December 2, 2017 Terminus Chapter Toy and Model Train Show. We have in past years sold out this train show. So, please register early with your payment so that we can include you all
We are making plans now to return to the home of the “GENERAL” in Kennesaw, GA at the Southern Museum of Civil War and Locomotive History next year on May 12, 2018 which will be NATIONAL TRAIN DAY.
