Holiday Train – December 12th

Holiday Train 400 x 250Thursday, December 12th, 2019 marks the 21st anniversary of the Holiday Train stopping in Loretto as it makes its way across Canada and the US raising donations for food shelves. In 2018, the Loretto Holiday Train event raised over $22,000 and 900 lbs. of food for our local food shelves in Hanover, Rockford, Delano and Maple Plain.

It’ll be a fun event in Loretto, with festivities starting at 3:00 pm (the Holiday Train arrives at 4:15 pm, show time is 4:30 pm.)  This year there will be kiddie train rides, hot chocolate & cookies, the RE/Max Hot Air Parade Blower, holiday trees, bonfire, and interesting characters roaming the crowd – not to mention the great musical show put on by CP Rail on the train.

Come festive in your best winter holiday hat and bring a donation for the food shelf! It’s all about helping those in need – 100% of the cash and food donations go directly to our local food shelves. The Hanover Area Food Shelf continues to be our primary partner, with 5% of cash donations going to each of the following: Helping Hands Food Shelf in Delano, Riverworks Food Shelf in Rockford, and the Maple Plain Food Shelf.
