RE: [FJGRailroad] Sacandaga Dedication
We'll be meeting at the Fonda turntable site, 10:00 a.m. Saturday August 7.
It appears time will permit us to attend the dedication, as some of us have
been involved and received invitations. Dinner will be at 6:30 at the
RailYard in Gloversville, formerly Scotties Tavern, across from the depot.
Dinner usually breaks up after nine so I don't know if I'll be dancing,
Look forward to seeing you.
