~~ASCE Fox River Valley Branch Newsletter September 2017
Don’t want to say it, but summer is over. Kids are back in school and summer vacations are now just a memory. With everything winding down, ASCE Fox River Branch (FRV) is winding up for a great year of meetings, tours, and speakers.
Our branch has seen quite a few changes with our board members the past couple of years. This past July we had elections for the branch and in August all the positions have been transferred to the newly elected individuals. We have a great group of motivated members that are ready to make a change for our branch. The following individuals make up the ASCE FRV board:
Cory Thomson – Ayres Associates
Ryan Trzinski – Robert L. Lee and Associates
Brad Severson – R.A. Smith National
Joe Zellmer – JT Engineering
Jennifer Liimatta – Payne and Dolan
Daniel Witter – Rice Engineering
Ryan Betker - Omnni Associates
June we have started a tradition of a Timber Rattlers social event. Donate non-perishable food gets you a free ticket. Great turn out again this year and we will continue the event again next year. This has become a well attended meeting and are hoping the tradition continues.
On August 4th thru the 5th – Brad, Joe, and Cory went to Detroit to the Region 3 Assembly. Great assembly and enjoyed a great tour of Detroit's QLINE street car line and facility, operated by a non-profit organization called M-1 Rail. This project was privately funded project to help revitalize downtown Detroit and stimulate business development in the area. Several billions of dollars have been invested in downtown Detroit over the past decade. Please see some great photos from the trip https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B4cPIcTYf8QzVXZnOFZFODZmVU0 The following link is to Detroit M-1 train website https://qlinedetroit.com/
