The Monon Railroad Historical-Technical Society, which has its headquarters at The Depot railroad museum, will hold its 2017 convention at Salem Friday and Saturday, Sept. 29 and 30, and Sunday, Oct. 1.

Ron Simunic of Bloomington is the convention chairman and chose Salem as the convention site in part to give Society members an opportunity to visit the Society's extensive archives which are housed in The Depot.

The convention will open Friday evening with a social hour from 6 to 7 p.m., followed with a banquet. Pekin banjoist Jim Smoak, and guitarist Brian Allen, will entertain with railroad songs  during the social hour.

The  convention's final event of the weekend will be a train show and sale from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sunday. Admission to the show is $3 per person; $5 per family.

For complete convention information, see the Society's website -- Monon.org
