On October 22nd, 2011, the Museum welcomed employees of
Hammond Power Solutions (Walkerton Plant). Arriving by bus, they toured the

During lunch, the Curator, Noreen Hann and volunteers John Hann and Larry
Asp enjoyed meeting and talking with the employees.

Noreen & Paul,
On behalf of the Utica Shelby Emergency Communications
Association (USECA) and the Collins Collectors Association (CCA), we'd like
to THANK YOU BOTH and Lloyd, John, Ken and Rob for the Red Carpet treatment
that we all got from all of you! Please pass along our thanks to all the
volunteers and to the Hammond's for taking the time out of their weekend to
make us feel like family! All of us will be talking for months about this
trip and we are sure that more of the club members (from both clubs) will be
interested in visiting soon! Words cannot describe what we all chattered
about after we left the museum yesterday! Everyone expected to be blown away
by the collection of radio equipment, what everyone was NOT expecting was
the fabulous hospitality that all of you demonstrated to us!
All we can say is THANK YOU in the warmest, most sincere manner that we can!
