Union County Freeholder Chair Bette Jane Kowalski joined U.S. Congressman Tom Malinowski in presenting flags to members of the Model Railroad Club in Union. Rep. Malinowski presented an American flag that was flown over the U.S. Capitol in Washington D.C. while Freeholder Chair Kowalski gave the club a Union County flag.
The Model Railroad Club, founded in 1949, is one of the largest model railroad clubs in North America and features HO scale and N scale layouts, as well as other model railroad and industrial exhibits.
Located in a mixed-use section of Union County’s Lenape Park in Union, the club is an activity of the Union County Department of Parks and Recreation with a mission to educate the general public and the club’s members about the railroads, and the industries they served, in the New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania area.
