The Little Rhody met under a tent at Dave and Emily Kiley’s home in Swansea, Massachusetts. Here Sue Osberg, our good humored Superintendent, chairs the meeting. From left to right around the table: DK, Dave Kiley (Assistant Superintendent), Sue Osberg, Brian Osberg (former Superintendent), Dick Nagle (long-serving Chief Clerk & Secretary), Justin Maguire (Achievement Program Director), Linda Bergemann (Membership Chair), and Tom Emmet. George Landow, Little Rhody webmaster, took the photo. [Click on images to enlarge them.]

Left: Our hosts, the Kileys. Emily fed the group with hamburgers, hot dogs, stuffed pasta shells, and others brought deserts and fixins, amobng the most memorable Linda's amazing blueberry pie with six cups of Canadian blueberries, Sue’s Tollhouse cookies, and someone’s icing-topped brownies. Right: Brian and Dick.

Those who attended the meeting had a double treat: the chance to visit not one but two garden railroads, Dave’s and that of a neighbor.
