The other week we stopped to visit Ted and Thelma – after going to Bill Rumpf’s Memorial Service.
Ted is a retired machinist.
I was amazed at the detailed construction of his vehicles. He even made the wheels – except for the car wheels. Those were a special order.

It took him two years to build this locomotive. The dining car even has mini-blinds.
I cropped one of my pictures so you can see the mini-blinds.
After retiring, Ted, spent many hours helping Cerwin with chapel construction.
He built two beautiful model chapels and gave one to us for TFC.
He said we can keep it for our office, give it to the International Office, or put it on a benefit auction. Check out the steering wheel.
There is even wall to wall carpet. The rig is 44 inches long.
We are going to put it up for bid on a silent auction at the Lancaster Chapter Dinner Concert on Saturday evening – with a reserve bid of $450.00.
If you are not coming to Yoder’s in New Holland, PA, on March 26, and have questions or would like to put a bid on it – send me an email at email@example.com.
There will be a bidding sheet at the concert.
The winning bidder will receive the chapel – and the money will be a donation to TFC’s Chapel Construction account.
