Picnics

Summertime is a great time to be outdoors in Wisconsin. Of course so is winter but that's for other activities, not picnics. For several summers the club members have gathered at Eau Claire's Carson Park by the Chippewa Valley Railroad for a time of fun and fellowship and maybe a train ride. We have also held our picnic at a member's garden railroad site.

A new name for the club this year.

Queued for some of that good food again.

Fish in the pond and the village has grown.

Sitting or standing it's good conversation
with friends, great weather, and trains.
