Polar Express Begins!


Polar Express Begins! 12-4-19
Santa poses with family after children came
outside to listen for Santa's bells.

Our first session of the Polar Express went off without a hitch.  Miss Alexis hit the ground running and everyone had a great time!

Yesterday was the first time we've had to cancel sessions due to winter weather. It was a very hard decision to make, but after consulting with the Fire Department, Santa and his elf, and the handful of other volunteers it takes to make things happen, the consensus was to cancel.  We know it was a disappointment to those who were registered to come, but we will offer them pre-registration for next years event.
