Living Nativity Returns to Cass County

This living nativity is the only one in the state of Nebraska. It is quickly becoming an annual tradition with local families.  

Stop by on the following dates. Bring a friend and consider bringing your local church youth group. This would not be possible without the volunteers of local residents and 4-H clubs who donate their time and several animals for the various nativity scenes.
