The Mildred L. Brisco Circle of King’s Daughters and Sons invites the public to attend their annual Oh Come Let Us Adore Him nativity display.
This year’s event will be held on Sunday, Dec. 11, from 2 to 5 p.m. at Monsignor Farischon Hall, 401 South Lane St. in Palmyra.
“Not only will attendees get to see displays that were handmade locally, but nativities from other countries will also be featured,” said Carolyn Carpenter, circle president. “Cost to attend the event is simply a free-will donation in any amount.”
Free cookies and punch will be served, and door prizes will also be awarded.
Last year’s event was the first to be held in many years.
“For many years, our circle’s nativity display was an event that community members looked forward to,” said Cindy Davis, event organizer. “Approximately 50 attended the event last year. It was fun to talk to the attendees to find out which displays they liked the best or which they felt was most unique.”
Last year, Circle members, along with a few guests, provided the over 100 nativities that ranged in size from small ornaments to several local church displays that spanned entire six-foot tables, one of which was animated. The circle looks forward to having these displays and more this year.
“With new members and members who had more to display, we believe we will have at least 125 nativities – of all shapes and sizes – this year,” said Carpenter.
The King’s Daughters and Sons (KDS) is an interdenominational Christian service organization with the International Headquarters located in Chautauqua, N.Y.
It is comprised of approximately 4,000 members, and their focus is to lend a hand in service to others as taken from Mark 10:45, “Not to be ministered unto, but to minister.”
Locally, the circle enjoys giving back to the community by awarding at least one scholarship to a Palmyra High School graduate each year, supporting the Palmyra Food Pantry, and sponsoring birthday ladies at area nursing homes.
In addition, corresponding and supporting the residents and staff of The King’s Daughters and Sons Home in Mexico, Mo., is a top priority of the Mildred L. Brisco Circle of Kings Daughters and Sons.
The Mildred L. Brisco Circle of King’s Daughters and Sons’ members are from the Palmyra area and holds its meetings on the second Tuesday of each month. For more information, message the circle on Facebook or contact Carpenter at firstname.lastname@example.org.
