The banquet will be held Wednesday evening, October 8 aboard the the Grand
Traverse Dinner Train. The Grand Traverse Dinner Train operates over rails
owned by the State of Michigan. They offer three-hour tours, departing
at midday and in the evening. Each tour takes a meandering course through
the Boardman River Valley into Northern Michigan's Pere Marquette State
Forest. Excursions tour up to 60-miles of wooded countryside and depart
from and return to the beautifully renovated, historic Traverse City railway
station. For the benefit of passengers traveling between mid fall and mid
spring, when daylight hours are limited, halogen flood lights, mounted
along the outside of the train, permit easy viewing of scenery after nightfall.
