After 23 years in the position Edward Ribinskas has retired as the treasurer of the Akron Railroad Club.

Ed, who began his run as treasurer in 1994, gave his final report at the Nov. 18 ARRC meeting.

A Painesville resident, Ed joined the ARRC on April 25, 1986. He will continue to be an ARRC member and is scheduled to present a program next April.

In a show of appreciation for Ed’s service to the ARRC, President Craig Sanders presented him with a framed photograph of Nickel Plate Road No. 767 that Ed made last September at Jaite.

Ed has had a life-long passion for steam locomotives and traveled throughout North America to watch them in action as well as ride behind them.

Paul Havasi will replace Ed as treasurer in 2017. The other incumbent officers were re-elected to their positions for 2017 during the Nov. 18 meeting. They include Sanders as president; J. Gary Dillon, vice president; Jim Mastromatteo, secretary; and Marty Surdyk, Bulletin editor.
