Museum requesting nativity sets for exhibit

Tuesday, November 13, 2012

All churches in Plymouth County are invited to bring nativity sets to the Plymouth County Historical Museum.

The nativity sets will be used in the "Museum Manger," an exhibit opening in the museum's renovated Study Hall Friday, Nov. 23, according to a press release from the museum.

Churches that wish to have a nativity set on display through Epiphany should deliver the nativity to the museum no later than 5 p.m., Thursday, Nov. 15.

The museum is located at 335 First Ave. S.W., in Le Mars, and is open from 1-5 p.m., Tuesday through Sunday.

This will be the third year for the "Museum Manger," which is dedicated to the memory of Ron Burkard, a museum volunteer who joined his wife, Delores, in starting the "Museum Manger" in 2010.

Many other museum volunteers also are memorialized in the display.

A Christmas open house on Sunday, Dec. 2, will focus on the nativities.

Individuals are also invited to share a nativity set for display.

People who need to contact the museum staff with questions about the nativity sets may call 546-7002 or email pchmuseum@gmail.com.

In addition to the "Museum Manger," a holiday silent auction will be featured in the first-floor Hall of Champions.

Bids may be offered on various gifts donated by Plymouth County merchants through 5 p.m., Sunday, Dec. 23.

All proceeds will be used to sustain the museum building during the winter months, the press release stated.
