We are pleased to announce that Waushakum has a new Treasurer, Bobbie Jo Raiano
Meet the new treasurer!
Bobbie Jo, is the owner of an Avis/Budget Car Rental location, in Marlborough MA. She became a Junior member of WLS in September of 2002, when she was 11 years old. Prior to becoming an official member she spent many hours as a child playing in coal and rolling down the tiny hill within the dog bone at the old Norfolk St track. Her father, Tony, became a member when she was just 9 months old. For a number of years as a kid, Bobbie Jo could be found handing out sodas in the cooktent – pre soda machine days and running back and forth from the Hilton to the cooktent in a search for needed supplies to keep the cook tent functioning. She also helped with the cooking for the annual ham and bean dinner for over 5 years. As she became older, she eventually was promoted to running the register during meets in the cooktent when her mother, Joan, became too ill to do it. Bobbie Jo owns a 3.5″ gauge 1″ scale Little Engines 0-4-0 that is in the process of being rehabbed for the 2022 season.
