Tuesday, December 23, 2008

True meaning of Christmas - Members of various Marcus churches took turns re-enacting the first nativity scene when Christ came to Earth to save all of those who believe. A choir also sang Christmas hymns. Photo by Nancy Hohbach
Time for a Holiday Ride There was a constant line of folks waiting to get a Christmas ride in a wagon decorated with all of the holiday trim at the recent Marcus Hometown Christmas. The ride was the frosting of the event for many. Photo by Nancy Hohbach
Marcus recently celebrated the upcoming holiday with their 'Marcus Hometown Christmas.' The photos show some of the fun times which were had by all.

Roasting marshmallows - The local Boy Scout Troop always sets up a site for roasting marshmallowsat the Marcus Hometown Christmas. The smell of wood and warmth always draws folks to their activity.
