Junior Member Message from Jenny Kraus (Feb 2013)

Hello Everyone!

I hope everyone is starting to get back into their routines after the holidays. Spring is just around the corner! I would still love to see some more pictures of you with your train sets. With your parent's approval, please send me some photos. Doesn't matter if they are from the holidays, I would still love to see them!

If you are looking to add some new cars to your set be sure to keep updated at the LCCA store. We try to get new product on there as much as we can. For Junior Members, we still have some Dino cars available, we also have some LCCA T-shirts on there and some other great cars I am sure you would like to add to your collection.  If you have any suggestions of what kind of cars you would like to see in the LCCA store, be sure to send me some of your ideas.

We have some really great Special Events going on in the first few months of the new year. Make sure to check out the website with all of the updates to the calendar, it updates weekly.
