Coming Events

Next Meeting:    

 

The next RFI meeting will be on Saturday February 10. Meetings are held monthly at 7 pm at St. Andrew United Methodist Church, 2560 Villa Avenue. Exit  Interstate 65 at  East Raymond Street and go east. Turn right (south) onto South State Avenue  [or take South Keystone Avenue] to  Walker Avenue. The church is at the southwest corner of Walker and Villa avenues between State and Keystone.

 

The Ironman himself, Dan Maners, will be with us. Most of us are aware that Dan is known for his collection of interlocking tower photos, and that’s what he’ll be showing. In talking with Dan about his program he promised to show a mix of material that many people normally won’t get to. But along with that he will show nearly every tower that stood in Indianapolis over the years; 24 of them, now all gone.

 

Please remember to pay your dues for 2024. They can be paid at the meeting or sent to Larry Nilles, 783 Northampton Row, Danville, IL 46122.
