The South Shore Polar Express is an annual fundraiser by the Rotary Club of Plymouth and Plymouth Housing Authority.
Children are invited to wear their pajamas as they board a Commuter Rail train decorated for Christmas and ride from Kingston to Halifax and back as they listen to costumed volunteers read Chris Van Allsburg's story featuring a boy who learns to believe in Santa.
The ride includes a visit from Santa, fun and gift bags for each child.
Tickets are now on sale for this one-hour train ride on double-decker passenger cars from Kingston to Halifax and back on the MBTA’s Old Colony Line. There are four time slots: 11:45 a.m. and 1:45, 4 and 7:15 p.m.
Individual tickets sell for $20 each. Family discounts are available at $75 for a 5-pack of tickets and $125 for a 10-pack. They can be purchased at NorthEast Community Bank, 8 North Park Ave., Plymouth, or online at www.plymouthrotary.com.
For more information about tickets, contact Rotary Club of Plymouth President Donna Ouellette of NorthEast Community Bank at 508-746-7400. Proceeds benefit local charities sponsored by the Rotary Club of Plymouth and the Plymouth Housing Authority.
