Our May 2020 meeting has been cancelled. Next meeting is set for June pending events. Watch this site for further news about our meetings and trips for this year and don't overreact. Good health and best wishes to all.
We need editorial and production assistance with The Fast Mail, so let us know if you can help, or know of someone who might. Editors wanted!
Changes have occurred at the former Midwest High Speed Rail Association. It now is the High Speed Rail Alliance, with the website being https://www.hsrail.org. The snail mail address is 4765 N. Lincoln Avenue Chicago, IL 60625; the phone number (773) 334-6758. There’s a petition available on the website seeking signatures to send to Congress to support high speed rail service in America.
Your Club needs Board and Committee members to help make things happen. If you're not yet ready to make the full commitment to Board service you can help as a committee member with such things as trip planning, meeting planning and Fast Mail production. Please contact our office by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone us at 312-829-4500.
