As I recall. The NRHS Met at the MCL that was in Greenwood Park Mall. My Dad would go down there to the Meetings. I am not sure where we could go here in Johnson County that has a big meeting hall. Here in Bargersville we have the Senior Citizens Hall that could be used, But I have no idea what they would charge to use it on Wednesday Evenings. Maybe there is a Basement of a Church that could be used as well. That would be something that Bob and the Other Leaders would have to look into. We could always have it as a Pitch In Meal before the Program. Similar to what the Railfan's of Indianapolis does at their Christmas Program. Brian what you say may not be a Bad Idea. We have no idea as to how much longer MCL may stay open at that location. That would be something that you would have to bring up at our meeting for a discussion with our members for a vote. I think that several would agree that Their prices are getting so high that it is crazy. The quality of the food is not that great anymore, depending on what you get. the last time that  I got the Tender Loin, it was over cooked and tough.

Brian, you might want to check out Bob Evans in Franklin and maybe the Franklin Library.  I thing that non profits can use the Library for free.

For those of you that missed the Program last evening, You missed a Very Good Program. Don showed Photos of IU Tower Before the Tower was Torn Down and when it was Torn Down. He even had several Photos of Bob McCord at Work and even a Sound Track of Bob Talking on the Radio. It was Very Heart Breaking to here the Voice of Bob McCord who was a Great Person if you never got to Meet Him. A lot of Relics went into the Basement of IU Tower. CSX Didn't Let anyone know about Saving anything out of the Tower other than the Few People that were able to find out. Nothing went to the Historical Society in Indianapolis on the History of IU Tower that was Part of the Union Station Complex. All that is left is a Memory of IU Tower through Photos of a Tower that Handled over 200 Trains a Day. As usual Don did a Great Job with this Program.  A Big Thumbs Up goes Out To Don.
