On December 21, it was a dreary, rain soaking day, but it did not deter our group from having the times of our lives. We all boarded the Elf Express (actually we were let on early) and embarked on an adventure that will be remembered for years to come. Our group, made up of ladies from 55 to 87 years young, was generously given tickets to this Holiday Spectacular. The Manchester Lions Club was extremely thoughtful to give our area Seniors this memory that they will always cherish. Each volunteer could not have been more helpful and pleasant; whether it was assisting our group boarding or disembarking from the train, walking through the soggy ground or holding an umbrella to protect us from further drenching. To each and all of you, from conductors to coordinators, to ticket takers to Boy Scouts, to elves and to Santa and anyone else we missed, thank you for a most wonderful time.
