A major model train show with exhibitors from across Nassau County is set for next Sunday to benefit Hurricane Sandy relief efforts.
The Town of Oyster Bay will host the show at the William P. Bennett Hicksville Community Center at 28 West Carl Street, Hicksville, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday.
The model train show, coordinated and run by Trainville Hobby Depot, will feature exhibitors and train clubs from across Nassau County. All funds raised at the event by Trainville Hobby Depot will be donated to the American Red Cross, towards Hurricane Sandy relief efforts.
“In the wake of Hurricane Sandy’s devastation to many residents within the Town, as well as island-wide events such as this are essential to help those in need,” said Councilman Anthony Macagnone.
The show will be coordinated with assistance from Hicksville’s Boys and Girls Club, the Hicksville Chamber of Commerce, and the Northwest Civic Association.
Operating model train layouts will be on display with no vendor sales taking place.
