    The various tasks include: Help passengers on and off the train (it snowed and is slippery), help the Conductor dismiss families by section to go see Santa throughout the train ride; help keep hot water containers filled with water to mix cocoa in the carafes and take each of them to the five passenger rail cars before each train departure; restock self-serve hot cocoa, cookies, napkins and cup to areas; tidy up the train between departures; and be Santa's Helper. His helper sits at a desk in the Santa car, talks with children who are waiting, writes their names on THE LIST and keeps Santa's bag stocked with toys from nearby closet.

It's winter time! Let's do our part in helping the children in our community stay warm. The staff at Morton Junior/Senior High is accepting donations of gently used winter clothing. Coats, hats, gloves and other winter clothing items will be taken and made available to students in need of clothing for the fall and winter months. For additional information, contact the Morton Junior/Senior High School office at (360) 496-5300. We would greatly appreciate it and thank you for keeping our children warm!!

Community Service Hours Available
   The White Pass Community Coalition in Morton is looking for volunteers. The work would be for the Lewis Mountain Highway Transit, and the Coalition gets credit from their grant for having volunteers. It would work out great for both the kids and the Coalition if they wanted to do some community service hours there. They can take groups of kids or individuals. The work would probably vary from clerical to washing buses or cleaning the building. There is a lot to do there. Please call Doug Hayden or Janet Norris at 496-5404 for more information.
