More than 150 Penn College alumni and friends enjoyed a ride on the Polar Express this past Saturday, sharing milk and sugar cookies from Dining Services, a reading of the book that gives the excursion its name, and a visit from some holiday VIPs. The college’s Alumni Relations Office reserved three cars on the Lycoming Valley Railroad train, which is sponsored by the Williamsport/Lycoming Chamber of Commerce and travels the short-line tracks near the Maynard Street Burger King.
