Community Christmas

The Northern Utah Division’s hands on kids activities traveled to North Ogden, with the help of Melinda Watson, Geoff Carter and Keith Osojnak, for the 8th annual Community Christmas. The event assists poverty and homeless families of Weber and Davis Counties with Christmas gifts, coats and hats, and canned food for the season. While parents “shop” for items, the children of approximately 2000 families are entertained in the children’s carnival area. The NMRA tables were a huge success during the six hour event. Children and adults enjoyed the inventive booths for hours, with CC volunteers sneaking in a chance of their own to run the trains and race the boxcars.
