Covid-19 Updates from Salt Lake County

Given the most recent CDC guidelines, COVID-19 restrictions in Salt Lake County facilities are being lifted.  Our current updates are as follows:

  • Patrons who have been vaccinated do not have to wear masks. Anyone who is more comfortable wearing a mask may continue to do so. These two groups should still wear a mask, if not participating in physical activity:
    • Anyone who has not been fully vaccinated.
    • Children under the age of 12.
  • Vaccinations are strongly encouraged and opportunities to receive the vaccination continue to grow with pop-up clinics scheduled throughout the summer (some of our centers will host pop-up clinics).
  • Respecting personal space (commonly referred to as “social distancing” over the past year), is a courtesy that we continue to encourage.
  • For your health and the health of others, if you are sick, please stay home.

December 18, 2021–Gift Exchange/Christmas Party
Presented by Northern Utah Division

In the spirit of the season, we would like everyone to bring a treat to share (dessert or meal-type food) and a wrapped gift for the Gift Exchange. It can be something funny or even practical that you no longer have need of. The gift should preferably be train-related but it doesn’t need to be. Let’s have some fun!

 

 

TBDUnion Pacific Turbines
Presented by Fred Baney

A fascinating history and facts about the UP Turbines. (A continuation on his prior presentation of the same subject.)

 

TBDMulti Mini Clinics

We will be starting our multi mini-clinics. We will have one on using an air brush with Blaine Holbrook and two others going on simultaneously. Rotating every thirty minutes or so. Stay tuned for more information.

 

 


As the Clinic Coordinator I look at what this requires and realize we all can contribute to our clinics. I started with a sheet of plywood with my father back when I was a child and since then have done so much, especially in the last few years. We all have skills and experiences that we can share. Being retired from the Education profession also has shown me that what I have done in the past can help someone else looking for an answer. I will call upon all of you to share what you have learned, because we all have a love of trains.
