Sponsors For those individuals and local businesses that would like to assist our programs and realize some advertising as a significant return benefit, we offer "Sponsorships" at $50 per year. For that amount, we will make an attractive plate displaying your company name, address, logo, photos - anything you want on it. We display these plates on our Sponsors Board at the Otto Allen Building at the Citrus County Fairgrounds, where it is seen by visitors to the Fairgrounds flea market every Friday and Saturday, and by visitors at the Citrus County Fair for a full week. The Fair typically hosts between 5,000 and 7,000 visitors. Our Sponsor Board is shown in the photo at left (click to enlarge).

Membership in the Citrus Model Railroad Club is open to anyone 18 years of age or older with a genuine interest in model railroading. To be considered for membership, you must have attended at least 3 meetings within a three month period prior to making application. These three meetings may include the monthly program meetings and weekly work or operating sessions, and must include the program meeting at which the application is presented to the membership for vote. Membership begins after an affirmative vote by the majority of members in attendance and payment of dues and fees. Dues are currently $60 annually and there is a one-time New Member Assessment of $100 to help pay for the extensive renovations made to the club house (Otto Allen Building).
