GET OUT YOUR CALENDARS and mark Saturday, September 10, to attend MARP’s 38th Annual Meeting. Clara’s On The River – the former Michigan Central depot in Battle Creek – is the site of this year’s meeting. Our keynote speaker will be former Congressman Dr. John “Joe” Schwarz, whose experience in government and lifelong interest in railroading give him a unique perspective and influential voice in the continued development of train services in Michigan. Also on hand will be Tim Hoeffner, head of MDOT’s Office of High Speed Rail and Innovative Projects, who will review the Snyder administration’s initiatives in a year of exciting developments for rail.
Be on the lookout for a postcard from MARP in your mailbox in the next few days with details of the program. To make your reservation, all you need do is return the postcard promptly, along with the required payment for the catered lunch and program.
