President’s Message

Greetings and Happy New Year!

I am very proud to announce I am your new President of the Ontario & Western Railway Historical Society. We have a lot of work to do, and we will be starting immediately. As promised in my campaign statement about having PayPal, I am happy to announce that PayPal, for renewals and new members, is ready and just needs to be activated and fine-tuned. This should be available very soon.

The month of January will be a very busy month for me and the other officers as we begin the transition, but we hope to have everything ready for in person meetings, hopefully with Zoom, for those who can’t make live meetings for the month of February and beyond. In conclusion I must say I am very excited to be your President and we will do wonderful things together for the good and the future of the Society.

Joseph Senese – President

“We’re doing three road numbers in the gray scheme,
and yes, donations will go towards #105.”
