ARRC End of Year Dinner is Saturday in Stow

The Akron Railroad Club will bring 2014 to a close this Saturday (Nov. 29) with its second annual end of year dinner.

Bulletin Editor Marty Surdyk will again be doing the program, which is titled Back to the Fifties, Part 2. Marty will be showing slides taken by his father, the late William J. Surdyk, during his travels to visit various railroad operations in the 1950s.

Marty showed a similar program of his dad’s photographs at last year’s end of year dinner and it proved to be quite a hit with those present. The 45-minute program went by all too fast. That should be the case again this year as we view vintage railroading operations and equipment, most of which aren’t around anymore.

The event will be held at Beef ‘O’ Brady’s restaurant at 3732 Darrow Road in Stow. As was the case last year, those attending will order dinner and drinks from the menu and pay the restaurant directly. The ARRC is not collecting any money for this event.

We have a meeting room set aside for us and it can comfortably hold 32 people. The event will begin at 5:30 p.m. with drinks. Dinner is expected to be served at approximately 6:30 p.m.

The end of year dinner has replaced the annual December banquet that was held for many years at various sites in Akron, most recently the Martin Center of the University of Akron.
