Marvin Kempner

The South Florida Railway Museum (SFRM) announced an annual award up to $1,000 to help a club in the Sunshine Region finance a project that provides major value and benefit for the promotion of the hobby.

It is called the Kempner Award in honor of Marvin Kempner (MMR 405) who is the Patriarch of SFRM. Marvin is 95 years old and visits us nearly every Saturday.

Applications for the award should be mailed no earlier than August 1 and no later than September 30. Further details will be provided in the coming months and posted to this web page.
