Deerfield’s Train Enthusiasts Spread Joy On Campus


Gordon Rittmeyer, along with a few other residents have set up a working train and village for the last two years during the holidays. Gordon and the group of train enthusiasts took shifts to be “engineer” at particular times of the day and ran the display for those who wanted to enjoy the train making its way around the track. On any day of the year, a train might be clickety-clacking along in the garage at Gordon and Judy’s home at Deerfield. He loves to share them with others, especially his grandchildren. Judy organized a showing for residents from Simonds Healthcare Center. It is now something to look forward to in the Community Center during the holidays!
