Horwood Salvation Army sharing a special story on Dec. 9

The Salvation Army corps from Horwood will once again transform the Moyles Farm barn (located on the road to Brown’s Arm) into a scene from the first Christmas.

Pictured are volunteers from the congregation who brought to life angels, shepherds, wise men, Mary and Joseph to recreate the Christmas story last year. There will also be animals there to add to the realism of the story being told with two donkeys, a mule, horses and goats.

Last year around 150 people came out to share in the story. This year the event will take place on Saturday, Dec. 9 beginning at 3p.m. (same location). Donations of non-perishable food items for the food bank are welcome. Remember to dress for the weather.

Pictured from last year are (front, from left) Ella Hiscock, Don Noble, Herb Hart, Cybil Noble, Tiffany Martin and Wyatt as Baby Jesus, Lena Kelly; (back) Rahab Hiscock, Maggie Purchase, Kim Hart, Olive Budden, Gladys Hart, Paige Normore, Josh Hart, Wendy Hart, Chloe Purcell, Danita Purcell, George Lewis and Major Lorne Hiscock. Missing from photo is Linda Lewis and musicians Andrew Butt, Tina Clarke and Alonzo Stride.
