Mark your calendars for Saturday, December 16th as that is the day that Santa Claus will be visiting the historic Hawthorne Train Station. The Volunteer Railroaders Association are proud to announce that Santa will be stopping by the station between 11 am and 3 pm and would like to visit with all the good little girls and boys in town. Each child can have their pictures taken with Santa, tell him what they would like for Christmas and each will receive a candy cane. In addition, Santa has invited one of his elves to come with him and a surprise cartoon characters as well.
The Volunteer Railroaders will have the station and the area outside the building completely decorated for the holiday season and will have lots of railroad artifacts and historical items on display for everyone to enjoy. They will even have a Thomas train layout set up for the kids to enjoy. There is no cost to attend, although donations are greatly appreciated.
Everyone is encouraged to bring a new, unwrapped toy with them to donate to the Toys for Tots program, which helps makes the holiday season a happy one for needy children in our area. Everyone who brings a toy will be entered into a drawing for a very special prize.
So grab the kids or grandkids and head on down to the station between 11 am and 3 pm this Saturday for what is sure to be a fun experience. The station is located at 80 Royal Ave in Hawthorne. For more information please call the VRA at 973-238-0555 and leave a message.
