Special Donation for the National NRHS

For our members who wish to make a contribution to the NRHS by check, please send your donations directly to the NRHS Treasurer at:

        Mr. Bob Bitzer
          NRHS Treasurer
        7617 Woodbine Dr.
        Laurel, MD 20707-5392

Please include a note that this is a donation to the NRHS.  Please also let him know of any restrictions on this donation, or that it is unrestricted.  Especially this year, we really need the unrestricted donations, while we work to get our financial house back in order.

Bob will send you a tax letter in a timely manner, so please be sure that your address for the letter is clear.

A donation sent directly to Bob will bypass the expense and delays associated with checks sent to Fernley & Fernley.

Thank you for any tax-deductible donations you wish to make.

Thank You,
Al Weber
President, National Railway Historical Society
