DATETIMEEVENT/LOCATIONADDITIONAL INFO
Aug. 30-Sep 5, 2016  Allentown Fair
Allentown, PA
EPTC has been asked to display at the upcoming Allentown Fair. This is a great opportunity to market our upcoming meet in the same location. The display will run from Tuesday Aug 30th through Monday Sep 5th and runs from 3PM – 9PM most days. We will have an HO and O scale layout in operation and need help to staff the display through this period. Please help by volunteering to come for a day or more if possible. We will have a three man crew each day and we have only one parking spot so we will carpool from the Plymouth Meeting Mall. Please contact Mike Junod at (215) 805-6325 or webmaster@eastpenn.org to volunteer.
