The banquet meal (included in your registration) will include:
Classic Garden Salad, your choice of one entrée: Herb Marinated Chicken Breast, Grilled Salmon, Fire Roasted Flank Steak or Portobello Napoleon. Served with Freshly Baked Diner Rolls and butter, Classic Potatoes Au Gratin & Spice Roasted Squash Blend with Red Pepper and Italian Onion, NY Style Cheesecake, plus Complimentary Coffee, Iced Tea & Water.

Wilson has written a very interesting book about the last train robbery in the country, entitled “Bedlam on the West Virginia Rails”. Wilson spent several years interviewing Lu Ramsey, who robbed the B&O train after it left Washington, DC in 1949. Lu retired to Spartanburg, SC following quite a colorful career. Wilson will explain the story line and will also dress in costume as Lu towards the end of his presentation.
We are looking forward to an entertaining evening.
