Conductor Jim Kern welcomes all aboard the St. Peter's Railroad Express, dubbed as the "monkey express." St. Peter's Catholic Church held its annual picnic Sunday with the model train car. Enjoying themselves on the train ride are Alexa Figley, 1, Mallory Figley, 3, Jackson Martine, 7, Isabel Martine, 10, Ryan Hechler, 5, and Madelyn Conti, 1.
The day would not be complete without sampling the church's famous homemade pierogies. Picnic volunteer Diane Bauder, right, of Hokendauqua, serves up a batch to Fran Sajkowicz, of Whitehall. PRESS PHOTOS BY AL RECKER
