Help decorate the North Pole

The Dennison Railroad Depot Museum extends an invitation to the community to help on Saturday, Nov. 21 in setting up the North Pole in Newcomerstown for the Polar Express Train Rides.

Work will entail decorating Santa's Workshop and sleigh, elf houses, Christmas Trees and more. Work will begin at 8 a.m. on Railroad Street in Newcomerstown.

The North Pole is located at the intersection of Railroad and Nugent streets.

Museum Director Wendy Zucal shares that this is a perfect project for students required to do community service and individuals and organizations looking to help their community. The Polar Express Train rides running Dec. 4,-6, 11-12 are expected to bring nearly 10,000 visitors to the area, adding tourism dollars to the area's economic development. The project is completed largely by community help, requiring over 150 volunteers a night to operate the trips in

For anyone interested in working on the train, a final training session will be help Nov. 19 at 7 p.m. at the Depot.
