RE: PC: historical society

	This idea was brought up about a month ago, I think. If memory
serves, Jerry Jordak was going to do some homework on this at a Conrail
Historical meet I think this month.
	I am still willing to handle the various administrative things
involved, such as membership rosters, dues, public notices, inquiries,
and the like.
	Regarding a get together, I live in Greensboro, NC, so I guess
NC is in the lead! Where do Jerry Jordak and Jim Hebner live? Or anyone
else for that matter. There is a MER meet in Charlotte, NC late April. I
don't know about other divisions.
	I agree with Jim; we need to get going with this.
