The Polar Express

Sigma Alpha Lambda at University of Akron volunteers annually at The Polar Express. At The Polar Express, children arrive in their pajamas to board the train and listen to someone read The Polar Express story. Elves serve them cookies and hot chocolate while they ride. When they arrive at “The North Pole,” all the characters from the story act out their roles. This year, SAL members dressed up as elves and a gingerbread man. They acted their parts, excitedly smiling and waving to children who rode the train. (more…)
