The Register Citizen (Torrington, CT) - - NEWS - RAIL­ROAD MU­SEUM OF NEW ENG­LAND

THOMAS­TON — All vet­er­ans and their fam­i­lies are in­vited to at­tend the fourth an­nual “Salute to Vet­er­ans” on Sun­day, Nov.11 from 8 to 10 a.m. at the Thomas­ton Rail­road Sta­tion, at 242 East Main Street in Thomas­ton.

The Rail­road Mu­seum of New Eng­land is part­ner­ing with the Thomas­ton’s Amer­i­can Le­gion Post 22 and the Thomas­ton Sav­ings Bank. In ad­di­tion to a cer­e­mony of ap­pre­ci­a­tion, cof­fee and break­fast will be served.

Ja­son Mee­han, Post 22 Com­man­der of Thomas­ton’s Amer­i­can Le­gion, and other Post of­fi­cials will lead the pro­gram to com­mem­o­rate vet­er­ans of all wars. Mee­han planned the event with Steve Casey, Pres­i­dent of the RMNE, and Kim Curry, Thomas­ton Sav­ings Bank Branch Man­ager.

“We are ex­tremely pleased with the com­mu­nity sup­port we get ev­ery year for this worth­while event,” Casey stated. “We try to thank vet­er­ans ev­ery day for their sac­ri­fices, so it’s great to be part of a team to do some­thing spe­cial to rec­og­nize them. This year’s Vet­er­ans Day is es­pe­cially im­por­tant be­cause it is the 100th an­niver­sary of the sign­ing the armistice of that ended World War I.”

The RMNE, at the his­toric Thomas­ton Train Sta­tion, is a not-for-profit, all vol­un­teer, ed­u­ca­tional and his­tor­i­cal or­ga­ni­za­tion that dates to Jan­uary 1968. The mis­sion of the RMNE is to tell the story of the re­gion’s rich rail­road her­itage through ed­u­ca­tional ex­hibits and the op­er­a­tion of the Nau­gatuck Rail­road.
