This year’s award was not requested by any of our SSR organizations, thus the award lay dormant. The recent swap meet sponsored by the museum owes some of its success due to the involvement of two Florida based modular groups, the ECHOES and the FECRS. Both organizations put extraordinary effort into putting on their best face. For this dedication and effort, the museum’s Board of Directors made the decision to divide this year’s Kempner Award between these two organizations. So, the Kempner Award for 2021 went to the East Coast HO Exhibitors Society and the Florida East Coast Railway Society, an award well deserved by both. The museum thanks both groups beyond the award for their involvement in our show.
