Toledo's Passenger Trains: What are they? When are they? Where do they come from? Where do they go? Why trains can be the best, most comfortable, energy efficient way to travel. We'll take a look back to our heritage - how we got to where we are - sometimes exciting, sometimes romantic, sometimes humorous, and sometimes scary! And, we'll get an up-to-date report on the vision for future rail travel. Everyone will receive a packet of resource materials including the sometimes puzzling Railroad Timetable. Presenter: William Gill is Vice Chair of the Public Transit and Passenger Rail Committee of the Toledo Metropolitan Area Council of Governments (TMACOG). He is Regional Coordinator of "All Aboard Ohio" - the Ohio Association of Railroad Passengers. For the past five years, he has been Chairman of the region's popular "National Train Day" celebration. (Why not join us April 5th to ride the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad?)

No matter where you look, no matter what building you visit at Lourdes, phenomenal artwork is everywhere, from the mosaics adorning the buildings, sculptures tucked in corners, to tiles imbedded in the floors, and the details of the door handles. Sister Ann Carmen Barone, Vice President for Missions and Ministry, will share the rich history of this extraordinary art collection.
After our luncheon, you will have the opportunity to tour the campus to view more of the collection.
