Monday's Lunch Program
June 26:
Railroading in New Mexico

Railroads were the key that unlocked the Land of Enchantment to the rest of the country in the late 19th century. This presentation will describe the history of railroads in New Mexico and take the audience on a train trip across the state in 1943. 

We will also discuss the restoration of a 1940s-era New Mexico railroad icon, the Santa Fe steam locomotive 2926, that is being restored to operational status by a group of volunteers here in the Duke City.

Let’s Support Our Nepal Project
RCA has pledged $5000 toward the Nepal Girls’ Menstrual Health Project sponsored by Del Sol. It was recently approved by RI. Del Sol and an allied non-profit, Women To Be, are hosting a Bike Ride on July 15th to raise extra funds. They need riders!

If you ride, please register.

If you don’t ride, who do you know who does? Maybe you’d like to sponsor that person for $50. If every Club member would find just one rider, we’d reach the goal number. Show your support for an important Global Grant we have endorsed.
