The Holiday Train Is Coming Soon!

You know Christmas is getting closer when the Holiday Train schedule is released! It was announced that the Canadian Pacific Holiday Train will be making its way through Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Iowa starting December 2, 2019. Performance stops will include 46 towns across the three states.

I've always wanted to check out the Holiday Train in Thief River Falls, but never seem to find the time. I'm going to try again this year!

The Holiday train is entering its 21st year, and it uses music and community spirit to raise money and generate healthy food donations for food banks in communities along CP's network.

Performing this year on the Canadian Pacific Holiday Train will be Meghan Patrick, Tanika Charles and Kelly Prescott.

Jokes of the Week

• After his annual physical, a man was told by his doctor that he needed to watch his weight. So he decided to get it out where he could see it!

• Another man went to his annual physical. After the exam the doctor told him he needed to "diet". But the man said he like it the color it was!

• A lady joined weight watchers and then entered the competition for the "no-belly-prize award"!"

Thanks Pastor Joe for the jokes! I still haven't decided which is the better humor the jokes or Julie trying to figure them out and can't so she just tells Pastor Joe they are dumb. He usually explains them to her in the evening and the next day she still thinks they just aren't funny. Gotta love Julie!!

The two of them are the most amazing couple and are just too cute on how they are with each other. I give them the couple of the year award!!
