Do you have what it takes to be Santa’s helper?
Do you want to serve hot cocoa on a moving train?
Do you BELIEVE?
Come one! Come all! It is Polar Express time.
If you have volunteered in the past we are hoping that you will once again hop on board with us and join in on all the fun. If you have not helped out before, please feel free to join us this year.
We always need Conductors, Chefs (no worries, there is no cooking involved) and Jolly People.
The trains will depart on December 8th and 9th, 2018
Volunteers for the train must be at least 15 years old. You are asked to wear a white shirt with a pair of black pants. Please dress warmly as the train can be drafty. We will provide the hats, aprons and anything else to transform you into a chef. For those who will be conductors we will provide hats, mustaches (if you haven’t grown your own), ticket punchers and bow ties. Conductors will also need to wear a black suit-type jacket. Wear comfortable shoes. There will not be room on the cars for your heavy coats but we will have space inside the station to store them. Unfortunately, each seat is a paid seat, therefore, there will be no room for your children or grandchildren unless they have a ticket.
We need Jolly People and the Elves to be inside the station. Ages 11 and up can volunteer for this position. Costumes will be provided but all Jolly People and Elves MUST wear a red top and black pants. We will feed Jolly People! If you are interested in these positions sign up here. Community service approved!!
The chefs serve the hot cocoa, clean up their cars after each ride, and help the readers show pictures, as the story is being read and most importantly – YOU ARE TO HAVE FUN!
The conductors go through their cars, punching the tickets, passing out the candy and most importantly – YOU ARE TO HAVE FUN!
If you are wanting to work at the same time as another person please let our volunteer coordinator, Nancy, know so that she can schedule accordingly. We invite you to share this info with your family, friends and co-workers. We are looking forward to seeing each and every one of you again this year as we head off to the North Pole.
All volunteers will be required to attend a one (1) hour training session. **All training will take place at the Welcome Center in downtown White River.**
The training time options are:
