Dec 15, 2012 Special Holiday Season Charity Events (Recap)

We had two great Special holiday season charity Events on Saturday 12-15-12.  During the Day, Bob VerHoef and Pam Richardson hosted a great "Christmas in Iowa "Open House and Train Show" event in Leland Iowa.  Over 350 guests and LCCA members participated in this festive event. Brett, age 15 of the North Iowa Make-A-Wish (MAW) foundation was named the honorary engineer for the day. Brett had a great day running her new Lionel Train set.  Bob and Pam's generosity raised several hundred dollars to be donated to the local MAW Foundation. Thank you Bob and Pam for hosting such a great, successful event.

Later during the evening Woody and Madeline Hickman hosted an open house event at their home in Dallas TX. People brought non-perishable food items for the Frisco Food Services Food Pantry. Bob "Choo Choo" Carter and his wife Dinah were there enjoying the Lionel trains along with the camaraderie of good friends and LCCA Members. Thank you Woody and Madeline for inviting our members into your home.

Thank you to all of you who attended and participated in these Special Charity events. Your generosity is very much appreciated and will go to benefit worthwhile Charity organizations. Thank you and happy Holidays!
