NWI Chapter Meeting Information
(Page updated 07.18

     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.
