Hi Everyone, We had a great meeting at Collinsville. It was very well attended. The Tail Gate Tool Swapping at the meeting was very busy with a good assortment of tools changing hands. The Collins Axe Company displays of tools, axes, blacksmith shop and train layout were great! The Frozen Tool Swap Meeting was voted on and approved by the membership at the meeting. Andrew Sistrand has put a deposit down on Lakeview Lodge in Bethany, Connecticut, on Rt. 42, off Rt 63, connecting with Rt 8 & Rt 15. The Date will be Sunday January 12, 2020, snow date Sunday Jan.19. Sign-ups for buying tables at $15 each will take place at our September 22 meeting in Thomaston at the Railroad Museum of New England, or call me at 203-415-9982.

From Barry Doohan: Today (Aug. 28) received word that a great long time friend and colleague John Delay has passed. Len Brace provided the sad news through Bill Petremont.
Sunday we at the ATTIC Board Meeting had an opportunity to think about John and his many contributions to ATTIC and I am sure we all lost a true long term friend and a GREAT GUY to us all. We sent out a "thinking of you" card and I hope that it is viewed by son Kyle and family as a sign that we all cared deeply about John.
A funeral service for John will be held on Saturday September 8th at 10:00am. Saint George Church 33 Whitfield Street Guilford, CT
