All over the country, children are celebrating the end of their school year. Thousands of young engine enthusiasts are now free to attend the many swaps, shows and auctions with their parents and friends. Engine collectors perform a valuable service in the education of young people when they demonstrate the powers of the past. In this, the 'information age,' there is much to understand about how simple tasks were accomplished in years gone by.
We had a couple of changes to shows in our directory, which we published in our May issue. These changes appear again in this issue, and we're pleased to report that there have been no additional revisions thus far. However, if there are changes, you will find them in future issues of GEM and IMA.
Mr. Wendel has returned from his recent trip to Australia, and we look forward to having him back on the Reflections Column next month. We also look forward to hearing what engine sights he and his group have found on the other side of the world.
To our subscribers in the Red River Valley, our thoughts are with those of you who might be affected by the high water in that part of the country.
Remember to display your flag on Flag Day, coming up on June 14!
