The Canadian Pacific Holiday Train came to St. Louis Park again on December 13, 2022, to support the local food shelf, STEP. Acacia Chapter was excited to be a part of this community activity for the fifth time by selling popcorn and hot chocolate at the event, which was held in the neighborhood near the chapter and STEP. In spite of rain and wind, many community members came out. And STEP was nice enough to let us set-up in their lobby. We sold 100 bags of popcorn and 11 gallons of hot chocolate. We could have sold more as we were the only vendor. Many chapter members participated to make this a successful event. The fourteen-car train, fully decorated in holiday lights, parked for about an hour and entertained the crowd with holiday music performed on a stage pulled out from one of the cars.

The Holiday Train came to St. Louis Park on December 11, 2023. Acacia Chapter again sold popcorn and hot chocolate and this year we added hot dogs. Thank you to Brother Kurt Johnson for facilitating the hot dogs. The weather was beautiful and there was a huge crowd. We sold out of everything and could have sold more hot chocolate and hot dogs. We had 13 helpers from Acacia Chapter and several people from Templar Lodge also helped. It would have much more stressful without the help from Templar Lodge. We were so glad to have them!
