The Flying Yankee Restoration Group was at the Hooksett, NH, Lions Club 22nd Annual Model Railroad Show on Sunday, April 23rd at the Hooksett Cawley Middle School, in Hooksett NH.

Wayne Gagnon and Tommy Robichaud (shown above) manned the booth, with help from Joe Linquata and Bill Clark.

This was a really nice show, on a really nice day! There were lots of vendors of models of all scales, and of railroad memorabilia. There were several operating layouts with at least one Flying Yankee model running! There was an excellent turnout of train enthusiasts, many of whom stopped by the FYRG booth to say hello, get caught up on the Flying Yankee status, buy some Flying Yankee gear, and/or make a donation to the restoration fund.

Thanks to everyone for making it a successful show! And a special Thank You to the Cawley Middle School staff, the Hooksett Lions Club and their staff for the golf cart "ferry" parking lot service and for allowing the "Flying Yankee group" to participate, and the Hooksett Boy Scouts who acted as parking lot guides and after show clean-up crew.
