Tuesday, March 8th, 2022, TTOS Sooner Division members Ron Geminn, Joan and John Spall put on an operating O gauge train display for residents of Fountains of Canterbury. The facility is an assisted living center in Oklahoma City. Lorna Deaton, Community Life Advocate, was really looking forward to members of TTOS Sooner Division setting up an operating train layout in the dining area of the facility. Ron, Joan and John were there when the lunch hour ended for set-up and ran their trains for just about two hours of fun. You could tell that the entire event brought back many memories for a number of the residents. Community outreach, a valuable activity that is encouraged by the Toy Train Operating Society’s Sooner Division, supports its members in participating when the opportunity presents itself!

TTOS Sooner Division members John and Joan Spall were "invited" to host a model train display before and after the show.
There was a great crowd that responded well to the live drama! The attending patrons had purchased tickets in advance with sales of 80 tickets being sold. Close to 100 individuals were present for the event. The Spall’s model train exhibit was a "hit" and the visitors loved the Prewar trains, Lithograph tinplate buildings and the running #50 Gang Car!
The sponsor made a wonderful announcement to say "thank you" to members of the Toy Train Operating Society - Sooner Division for this event. Also thanks was given for the Sooner Division in their participation at the "Holiday Hop" held in December the past two years.
