MSHC Membership News By Ed Kaminski Santa Visited the Maywood Station Museum on Saturday, December 13, 2014 Santa made a special visit to the Maywood Station Museum for the 13th Annual Santa at Maywood Station event on December 13, 2014. A festive crowd of young ones waited for the jolly red elf’s arrival and the opportunity to visit with him. Santa met with each good little boy and girl and every child received a bag of treats courtesy of Myron Corporation; Operation Lifesaver; TD Bank; Children Are Creative; Atlas Model Railroad Company; the New York, Susquehanna & Western Railway; and the Maywood Station Museum. Each child attending also was given a free chance to win special raffle prizes including a BMW Junior Bike Tricycle courtesy of Park Ave BMW, which was won by Wes Crawford and an HO-Scale Train Set courtesy of Atlas Model Railroad Co., which was won by Alexandria Vega.
