In what has become a holiday tradition, Patrick M. Breen, a first-shift General Services employee, set up his train in the Dunham Children’s Learning Center this month. The children love visiting it with their classmates and taking their families to visit it as they leave each day. The display has become a cherished seasonal addition since the child-care facility – included in Breen’s custodial duties when it was housed in the Bush Campus Center – moved to the Hager Lifelong Education Center in 2010.
