The Little Rhody met under a tent at Dave and Emily Kiley’s home in Swansea, Massachusetts. Here Sue Osberg, our good humored Superintendent, chairs the meeting. From left to right around the table: DK, Dave Kiley (Assistant Superintendent), Sue Osberg, Brian Osberg (former Superintendent), Dick Nagle (long-serving Chief Clerk & Secretary), Justin Maguire (Achievement Program Director), Linda Bergemann (Membership Chair), and Tom Emmet. George Landow, Little Rhody webmaster, took the photo. [Click on images to enlarge them.]
Left: Our Superintendent making notes and keeping things in order. Right: Dave Kiley near his garden railroad, which has grown and changed since it was last photographed for the Little Rhody site. Those who attended the meeting had a double treat: the chance to visit not one but two garden railroads, Dave’s and that of a neighbor.
