ARRC Sets Longest Day for June 28 in Alliance

Although it won’t be holding a meeting this month, the Akron Railroad Club plans to hold its annual longest day outing on June 28.

This outing this year will be held in Alliance. Attendees are asked to meet at the Lincoln Monument located at the west end of the Alliance station parking lot, preferably between 8 a.m. and 10 a.m.

The plans are to have Alliance serve as a central meeting point with attendees exchanging cell phone numbers to establish a communications network.

Attendees can then stay in Alliance or set up at such locations as Rootstown, Ravenna, Sebring, Salem or East Palestine and communicate train movements by cell phone.

At the end of the day the attendees still present will meet for dinner in Salem or Alliance.

The ARRC officers are discussing holding a Dave McKay outing on Aug. 1 in Berea.

The McKay Day outing had originally been scheduled for early May but was officially canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

However, some ARRC members attended an unofficial McKay Day outing in Berea on the original date.

The Aug. 1 date was chosen because it is two days before what would have been Dave’s 77th birthday.

The ARRC is still unsure if it will be able to hold a July meeting as it has not yet been cleared by the New Horizons Christian Church to resume meeting there.

The club had not met or had an official event since February.
