I had the same thoughts Ben when I saw that commercial.
Marty was a great guy and a huge contributor to our hobby for many years. Great idea Ben!
Just wanted to update everybody that donated This is the first time I have used GoFundMe and might be my last It has been a nightmare trying to withdraw the funds but I believe after about 100 emails and conversations it is finally in the process I have closed the account so it will not accept anymore donations. The Toy Train Museum wont discuss the designs until they get a check So hopefully as soon as it hits the club account our esteemed Treasurer Al will cut a check and send it on its way to Pennsylvania. Still hoping the dedication ceremony in October will be doable. I will continue to update everybody as we go.
Thank you thank you thank you to all that have donated to this
Interesting observation Ben, something that I wouldn't have expected. I suppose if they keep the money, it makes the site more profitable.
Great job, Ben! I agree with John, I wouldn't have expected that, but I have had no experience with Go Fund Me.
Well we finally received the funds from GoFundMe in the club account We are cutting a check for $5225.16 and sending it to the TCA Toy Train Museum today. Once they receive it we can finalize the layout Thanks again everyone
Thank you, Ben!!
Outstanding - thank you for the continued updates Ben.
That’s awesome! Very cool that this came together. Again, fantastic work Ben.
Thanks Ben a job well done Marty would be proud to be honored!
Moving along The Museum sent me a suggested layout The bricks are not staggered as we had thought before They are straight and in line The layout they sent was way too busy and Marty's name was lost in a bunch of graphics and too small
This is what they sent back
I modified theirs and came up with this I sent it back to them and will wait to hear
I like yours a lot better Ben.
I agree with John. Hopefully they say okay, we'll go with what you sent back to us.
I agree, yours is much better, Ben!
Two thumbs up, Ben.
