Please note that LaNtrak’s attendance has not yet been confirmed at some of these shows.  Confirmations will be posted as they are received, so check back often.

Please also note, all times shown are approximate, don’t hold it against me if I’m wrong…


 Regular Meetings

LaNtrak no longer meets in the former Pere Marquette / Chesapeake & Ohio depot from Howell, now located in the Livingston Historic Village on the Fowlerville Fairgrounds.  We do, however, have regularly scheduled meetings.  Currently we have two ‘types’ of meetings – work sessions and sharing/learning sessions.

Work sessions are where a sub-set of LaNtrak members get together to work on modules or some other item for the club or for some of the club members.  These type meetings are generally held at one of the members homes.

Sharing/learning sessions are held in one of the meeting rooms at the Lansing Main Library in Lansing, MI.  At these meetings one or more of the members will present skills or techniques that they have learned to the group.

It is always best to call ahead to verify if a meeting is going to be held.  Contact Mark Cowles (Howell) at 517-546-5241 or e-mail at

The Second Annual LaNtrak Summer Family Picnic

Was a success, a big LaNtrak thank you to Robyn and Mike Shollack, the hosts for the 2017 picnic.  We appreciate the work you put into this event.

Thanks to all of the members for the goodies they brought to share.

See you next year?!?!
