Avery’s 2020 Socially-Distanced Christmas and Live Nativity
When COVID put our normal Christmas community outreach on the skids, Avery went outdoors and provided a 2-night live nativity event, complete with a camel, sheep, donkey, goat and baby calf. Santa showed up, carolers sang, the kids got gifts, and there was plenty of hot coffee, Cocoa, and snacks for all. To see a video of the event, click on this link.
