Jerry Skeim, South Mountain Division Superintendent


Upcoming Meeting Date: 10 January 2021

The next SMD meeting will take place on Sunday, 10 Jan. 2021 via ZOOM. Log on time opens at 1:30 PM with the business meeting scheduled to start at 2:00 PM. The ZOOM login information is identical to the December meeting. A reminder will be sent out NLT the 9 Jan. 2021.

If any member has any concerns that they feel need to be addressed to the membership, or discussion topics that they feel should be included in the January meeting agenda, please forward them to me through our Gmail address at as early as possible before the upcoming meeting.

You will be able to find an impeccably prepared copy of our December meeting minutes at preceding the January meeting.

In other news:

I hope that everyone had a pleasant Christmas. Unfortunately, COVID-19 does not yet seem to be in our rearview mirror and cases continue at very high levels. Here’s hoping that there will not be another post-holiday surge as we witnessed after Thanksgiving. Please continue to follow the guidelines as outlined by our health agencies. On a more positive note, now that a couple of the vaccines have been approved for distribution and once we get the most at-risk populations vaccinated, our health workers, first responder’s and the elderly, I am looking forward to seeing an actual schedule for when the rest of us might be able to get vaccinated.

There is no post-meeting clinic or layout viewing scheduled for this meeting. If anyone would like to share anything with the division at the meeting please let me know through the division email account at

Hope to see you all on Sunday 10 January 2021 at 2:00 PM.

Stay safe and well!

Jerry Skeim, Superintendent

Happy New Year – 2021 Mount Clare Junction

Welcome to 2021! I wish I could say that January 1st completely wipes away 2020, but I can’t. What I can say is that we are continuing to plan a great convention for all of us to get together in 10 month’s time. Expect registration to open in the second quarter with a flurry of announcements before then (you thought I was going to say snow, didn’t you?).

During newsletter signup, and via the website contact page, all are invited to express what you would like to see or do at the convention. If you’ve submitted a request, it’s in the graphic above, and we are actively working to build clinics and events for you.

Should your idea, clinic or interest not be covered by an event listed on the website, take a moment to reach out to us, as other modelers have, and we’ll make something happen!

Share this with your fellow hobbyists.

Stay safe. Wear a mask. Socially distance. Get the vaccine.

Together we can be together in 2021.
