Ply. Co. Museum to clear nativity display

Thursday, January 11, 2018

LE MARS - During the week of Jan. 8, volunteers at the Plymouth County Historical Museum - Le Mars will begin dismantling “The Museum Manger,” a display of hundreds of nativities in the Museum’s Study Hall and adjoining room.

Anyone with a nativity to pick up may do so by Friday, Jan. 12. Those looking for their nativity should stop in the Welcome Room near the front entrance to the Museum.

Heading the effort to clear the Study Hall will be Jim and Mary Rohlfs and Julie Leaverton, co-chairmen, along with many volunteers.

Questions may be directed to the Museum staff, 539-0223.

The exhibit was up from Nov. 14 to Jan. 7, the longest run ever in its eight years. Over 1,000 people viewed this year’s “Museum Manger,” include five groups of bus tourists.

For the second year, an Epiphany Party starring the Rev. Paul Eisele at the piano wrapped up the Christmas season in the Museum on Friday, Jan. 5.
