Night Trains with the
Twin City Model Railroad Museum

Join us for a magical evening as we experience
Night Trains with the Twin City Model Railroad Museum. 

Night Trains Season comes to the museum in a magical way, the lights are turned down, the buildings and street lights glow warmly, setting the scene for specially lighted models of vintage passenger trains. The make believe town of Matlin is buried in a blizzard, and throughout the Museum the layouts are adorned with miniature Christmas lights and decorations.

This is a fabulous way to usher in the holiday season, especially with special
Midway Chamber pricing.

Fees/Admission:
$10.00 per individual

November Monthly Luncheon featuring speaker, Saint Paul Police Chief, Todd Axtell.

As the holiday's quickly approach we are excited to announce the Chamber's longstanding partnership with Saint Paul Police Departments Shop with Cop program. We are asking for donations from our members to help support Saint Paul Police Departments efforts to give back to the youngest members of our communities. 

What is Shop with Cops?

The purpose of the event is to foster positive relationships between youth and officers. Each child is given money to spend on the their immediate family. Participants are assigned to a police officer to shop with them. After shopping, the children will share a meal with their officer.
Volunteers are a vital component to the success of the Shop with Cops. Coordination of the program is done by volunteers, which allows all financial support to directly benefit the participants of the program.

This year's Shop with Cops will take place Saturday, December 1. More information on volunteer & donation opportunities can be found here: http://www.shopwithcops.com/
