We recently learned that the Napa Valley Model Railroad Historical Society will be displaced this December from their home at the fairgrounds.

With two young boys, ages 3 and 5, we have visited the Model Railroad numerous times. In fact, when we recently attended the fair in August our boys weren't most excited about the fair rides - they headed first for the Model Railroad.

Especially in this day and age when so many of our children are tethered to electronic devices, it is important to have experiences like the Model Railroad - which celebrates creativity, engineering, and good old-fashioned hobbies - available in our community.

Our family asks that you reconsider your decision to remove the Model Railroad before they are able to find a suitable alternative home. Please help preserve these sort of quality educational opportunities for our children.

Julie, Matt, William and Ben Crafton
