In Memoriam - Art Wannlund:

We are saddened to report that our beloved friend and participant Art Wannlund passed away following complications of pneumonia December 10, 2018. Art, who turned 99 just four months earlier, had been a steady participant in our program for one-half of a decade, and he was an inspiration to all who remember him for his wisdom and vitality. He had lived through the Great Depression, was a veteran of the second World War, and he taught physics as a profession. He was an expert in railroad bridge construction, and fondly shared his knowledge of the different types of bridges along the PRR Northern Central line. He also knew where the original cast-iron mileposts and whistle posts remained intact. He will be missed, but we know he will remain with us in spirit.
