So many people come by and admired. The children love baby Jesus. Pictures are made each year and rm very pleased and happy about it. The two men who work for me are to be thanked for each year cutting the palmetto in the woods each year and putting them on the manger which has been repaired each year. These men are Charlie Dixon and Ivy Christy. There's another person who deserves a big Thank You and that is our own John Hoover from the Ponchatoula Feed and Seed Store. He doesn't wait for me to ask for the hay to put on the grass, to make a floor. Each year it is brought in from his farm. Special Thanks to these three guys who never get their picture in the paper but who play an important part in the beautiful Nativity Scene.
