Event Category Young Children: Priority One
Event Type Youth Services
Event Description Polar Express is based on the children's book. Families ride the Metra train from Downers Grove to Aurora. While on the train, the story is read to the families. Once arriving at the roundhouse, there is food and games for the families.

As volunteers, we would be helping families board/exit the train and then help with games and refreshments. It's for two days, but volunteers usually choose one day although some do ask to come both days. Volunteers come for the whole event which is about 4 hours divided in two shifts – if one group rides the first train, they work the station for the 2nd shift and vice versa. I have groups that help at the Aurora train station, groups that come to carol, etc. so you can see it’s a major scheduling event.

They take volunteers on a first come, first serve basis and I generally have registration forms available by September 1.
