For you that are old enough to remember Mr. Purdie, here's a heads up... He's turning 90 this April.
There will be an open reception in his honor with light refreshments on Sunday, April 10 2005 from 2pm - 5pm at the Southeastern Railway Museum.
We are working on putting together a slide show featuring Mr Purdie and his work over the years. If you're interested in contributing, please contact John Marbury at: firstname.lastname@example.org or me at Randy.Pirkle@srmduluth.org
