So much more than dazzling lights


The Holiday Train will stop in Marquette on Tuesday, Dec. 10 around 5:15 p.m. It will feature 14 rail cars covered in thousands of holiday lights, as well as musical performances and a visit from Santa Claus.

Last year, Clayton County’s Holiday Train stop netted the Clayton County Food Shelf $7,897.40 and 4,019 pounds of food. At the Holiday Train’s stop, the Food Shelf will receive a $1,000 check from Canadian Pacific. All attendees are also asked to contribute a monetary donation or bring non-perishable food items, paper products or toiletries. Here, Clayton County Food Shelf Supervisor Utoni Ruff (middle) is seen accepting the Canadian Pacific check at last year’s Holiday Train stop in Marquette.

Ruff said the Food Shelf has a high need for protein, so the public should consider contributing items like peanut butter or canned tuna. Cereal and canned fruits are also in high demand. Paper products and toiletries like toilet paper, hand soap, toothpaste, laundry soap and shampoo are frequently overlooked as well.

Since the Holiday Train’s stop in Marquette is just one of three in Iowa this year (the others are Mason City and Charles City), Ruff said it is important for people to attend and show their support. “We need everyone possible to come and keep the numbers up, or else they won’t keep coming back,” Ruff said.
