Words from Our New President
As we read this issue of The Railyard Local, the candy eggs and jelly beans are beckoning our “little people” friends. So too, the Bunny Trains have arrived to entice these young visitors to enjoy and share the fun within the DRM. Fun, however, is not only for the young; we as adult members and volunteers should all enjoy what we do, how we work, and how we interact with our guests.

We extend our sincerest thanks and appreciation for the fortitude, hard work and understanding of Ira and his family, Sue and Josh. We can only hope to continue growing the DRM as it has grown in the past ten years.
In addition, we also wish to thank all the neighbor members who donate their time and energy working at the Museum to keep our projects moving, and to all our neighbor members and distant members who also support us financially.
Our ensuing goals: growth, expansion, construction, innovation, and fun. So let’s get on board the DRM train and travel together.
