Little News Leads to Newsletter Cancellation

March 28, 2020

A dearth of news has prompted the National Railway Historical Society to cancel publication of its March newsletter.

The NRHS News issue for March is normally printed and mailed to all members.

But in an email notice, Valli Hoski, the editor of the News, said many chapters and organizations have cancelled or rescheduled their events, programs and meetings due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The next issue of the News will be a PDF issue published in April. Hoski said the next printed issue of the News will be sent out at an unspecified date later this year.

In his email, Hoski asked NRHS chapters to send news and photographs of past fun events, programs, excursions as well as upcoming anniversaries and projects.

The July issue of the NRHS News also has a short article written by Sanders about the CVSR Bike Aboard! program.
