Sunday, August 12, 2001 was the annual M&NJRHS annual picnic at the Slate Hill, NY Fire Dept. Activity started at 800 AM at Johnson, NY with the departure of 6 motor cars for a trip to Middletown, NY. After turning the motor cars we returned to Slate Hill accompanied by the M&NJ engine & NYSW caboose. As the picnic commenced we gave motor car rides to picnic patrons from Slate Hill north to Janie’s & return. Joel Williams brought along his homemade hand car and gave rides south of Slate Hill. Participants in giving motor car rides & flagging US Route 6 were Charlie Roselius, Bill Smith, Charles Smith, K.C. Smith, Paul Trabert, Joel Williams and Chris Vitz. A good time was had by all.
