All Aboard!

Commuter Holiday Party Was a Huge Success!

Over 100 people attended the annual Holiday Party held on Train 730 on December 14th. In case you missed the mother of all train parties this year, the hors d'ouevres were delicious and plentiful and we're already planning for Holiday Train Party 2001! Gene Skoropowski, Managing Director of the Capitol Corridor Joint Powers Authority, and his staff were on board to join us in the festivities. Gene made a special request for an additional car for the evening -- the added space was much appreciated! We hope everyone had a chance to meet Gene and his staff and thank them for taking time out of their busy schedules to celebrate with us.

Special recognition and thanks to Kim and Chuck Hancock for organizing the extravaganza, preparing the decorations, and planning every detail to make the party enjoyable for all! We also extend our appreciation to Marty DeVault and Pupla (Pushpraj) Goswami for generously donating a case of champagne. Marty served as the party Finance Manager and did a super job. Other riders helped by picking up and loading food, decorating the cars, taking photographs, and cleaning up -- thank you to all!

We will be posting photographs of the party on the website soon, courtesy of Jack Arboleda. Just a few party scenes that might be posted -- Tom from Davis with the reindeer antlers, Margaret enlightening party-goers in Car No. 2, former commuters who made a special visit, and our train mascots -- Armen and Francesca.
