The Marvin Kempner Memorial Award


The South Florida Railway Museum (SFRM) announced an annual award up to $1,000 to help a club in the Sunshine Region finance a project that provides major value and benefit for the promotion of the hobby.

It is called the Kempner Memorial Award in honor of Marvin Kempner (MMR 405) who was the Patriarch of the SFRM. Marvin visited us nearly every Saturday and provided some interesting stories of his encounters, he was 96 years old when he passed.

Applications for the award should be mailed no earlier than August 1 and no later than September 30. Further details will be provided in the coming months posted to the summer edition Sunshine Region Journal Box publication.
