The Holidays are
Right On Track at BCM
Happy Thanksgiving!
We are so thankful for all of our amazing members and visitors! We would also like to express our sincere gratitude to everyone behind the scenes who has spent countless hours preparing our Holiday Traditions@BCM displays. Tom Vogt, John Lange and Richard Carr for setting up the Holiday Toy Trains . Diana Grady for setting up and sharing Wahoo's Winter Wonderland. And Ellen and Dave Sommerwill for setting up the Charles Dickens Victorian Village display. We're thankful for so many things, but for the work of volunteers like you, we're thankful most of all. THANK YOU!

As a reminder, BCM will be closed on Thursday, Nov. 28 in observance of Thanksgiving Day.
