Creche display coming to San Manuel

After years of planning, a committee, made up of members in the Tri-Community is hoping to bring the wonderful spirit of Christmas to their neighbors through the display of crèches or ‘nativity sets’ during the holiday season.

The Crèche (Nativity) Display will feature hundreds of nativity sets presented with beautiful music and colorful lights and decorations. There will also be a Children’s Room where children can make their own small nativity to take home. The event will be held December 1-2 at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 101 N Giffen Ave, in San Manuel.

Dorothy Staggs, one of the organizers, says, “To make this dream come true we are looking for anyone who would like to share their nativity set, wall hanging, picture, or other artwork of the birth of Jesus. Our plan is to have hundreds of pieces of art on display, whether small or large.”

As with any community event, the committee is looking for volunteers to make this a success. Help can be provided in the following areas: (1) collect nativity sets from friends and neighbors, (2) act as hosts/hostesses during this two day event, (3) act as security especially during the evening hours to help people to and from their cars, (4) iron tablecloths and table coverings, (5) donate the use of clear mini Christmas lights, (6) lend greenery for the table decorations, (7) make fabric pieces for the table decorations, (8) provide the use of oblong tables (9) help in the Children’s room, (10) be on the decoration committee, (11) and help encourage others to attend this joyous event.

Staggs says each nativity set will be assigned a number to track its owner. The committee asks those who would like to display their crèche to place their name and phone number on the nativity box. The nativity sets and other items will be collected from mid-Oct. until Nov. 15.

The Tri-Community Crèche (Nativity) Display will be open to the public on Dec.1 from 9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. and Dec. 2 from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. with a special musical program at 5:30 p.m. and a Christmas message from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.

For more information, or to volunteer, or to display a nativity set, please call Dorothy Staggs at 896-9780.
