Upstairs, the Model Railroad Exhibit was on display by the Jersey  Central N-Trak. Kids and adults alike, watched in amazement as the trains traveled through the different villages including of course the Christmas village and a Santa train. In the end, it appeared that the little kids favorite was Thomas the Train, which each child seemed to find right away and point out to their parents.

Proceeds from the event support Rotary local and international projects.
