Annual Board Meeting and BBQ - August 15, 2013

Rod Diridon

This 30th year CTRC Annual Board meeting and BBQ promise to be quite exciting.  We hope to be able to announce another major successes and hope even more that you might join us for these special events.

The Board meeting is open to the public and begins at 3:00 PM in the Pacific Hotel conference room at History San Jose at Kelly Park.

The BBQ begins at 5:00 PM, Thursday August 15 and is free to CTRC supporters and a guest ... but please RSVP to Lynda (408 924 7561 or Lynda Ramirez Jones - This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it ) to help with the meal count.

For the 30th time Dennis DeMelloPine and the retired County Firefighters will provide the food and the Singing Conductors will again entertain.

Senator Jim Beall, new County Supervisor Cindy Chavez, and Vice Mayor Madison Nguyen will welcome you and one of our historic trolleys will be operating...a special treat for youngsters of all ages.

In the last 30 years CTRC has raised over $3 million and parlayed that into over $20 million in physical assets for the Valley including nine historic trolly's restored and construction of a mile of electrified trolley tracks and the CTRC trolley barn at History San Jose.  We're nearing the completion of the rebuilding of the County's massive steam locomotive #2479 at the County Fairgrounds and have acquired three more historic locomotives and several historic rail cars in preparation for the soon-to-be-built steam railroad museum.

All of those assets have been built, maintained, and operated at no cost (with the exception of sincerely appreciated County Historic Hermitage Commission competitive grants) to the taxpayers by the phenomenal CTRC volunteers and donors who we honor on 8/15. Thanks to each of your for your continuing strong support.  We look forward to being with you soon.
