On May 4th (In recognition of "National Train Day" on May 7th), the four Central Elementary kindergarten classes visited the First National Bank's North Branch in Fairbury.
A total of 76 students took part in the Field Trip. The outing consisted of a Train Day Presentation with facts about the history of the train, it's importance and the continuing relevance that it still holds today, specifically the Transcontinental Train.
The children were given conductor hats with gift bags that included a train fact sheet, train whistle, balloons, pencil and candy. The children also enjoyed popcorn, cookies and lemonade during the half hour field trip per class. The trip concluded with a viewing of the North Branch Train Display.
Employees who assisted in Train Day were: Jennifer Sturdy, Shelly Hamm, Jennifer Carlson, Alicia Vossler, Jane Paul, Chris Smith, Vernon Pfaff and Tiffany Pfaff.
