Welcome to the Santa Train website for 2017

First, I would like to thank all my fantastic friends and family for helping me with the display this year.  I thought this
might be the year that ended the tradition.  The day before Father's day I had a freak accident that severed my right
thumb at the lower nuckle.  Since then I have had 5 surgeries trying to make it whole again.  Although the prognosis
is promissing, I still have limited use of my right hand.  I told one of my friends that I was probably going to dissappoint
a lot of children this year because, with my injury, was unable to set up the display.  Thanks to his incouragement
we had people coming out of the woodwork wanting to help.  As a result, in two days, most of the display got up  
leaving some minor assembly and tweaking for opening day.

THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! to everyone involved,  I could never re-pay the awesome act of kindness
in making the display possible this year.  I have the greatest family and friends ever.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all.
Display Hours: Thanksgiving Day, November 23, 2017 until Janualry 1, 2018. Open nightly until 11:00PM
