NWI Chapter Meeting Information
(Page updated 05.17

     The North Western Illinois Chapter holds a meeting on the fourth Saturday of each month, except June, July and December. We meet at St. Marks Lutheran Church at 675 North Mulford Road in Rockford, IL. Regular meetings begin with the doors open by 6:30PM, a short business meeting starting at 7PM and the main program to follow. There will usually be time for members in attendance to share any railroad news, news slides, or or participate in a mini-feature. Details on those events will be provided. For a detailed description of the featured show at the meeting, see below.

     We offer sales tables prior to Chapter meetings. Table reservations must be made one month in advance at $5.00 per table, payable at the meeting to our (TBA) table manager. Availability is first reserved-first served.

NWI Meeting Protocols

Our chapter meetings will have protocols in place that we will adhere to. These are mandated by local governments and not a bad idea to boot.

You must wear a face mask properly.

Your temperature will be checked and you need to register in. This is required by St. Mark’s Church.

We are limited to 50 attendees.

There will be scattered seating. You may join folks you arrive with, otherwise please do not rearrange the chairs to form groups.

If you registered at a prior meeting, you are still good to go. However, if you have not, we ask that you do so at the next meeting.

This is a one- time thing.
