Live nativity to be held at Trinity church Dec. 11

The annual Henning Live Nativity will have a change of scenery this year. The live nativity will be located outside of the Trinity Lutheran Church building in downtown Henning. The live nativity had been hosted at St. Edwards Catholic Church for a number of years, but will be moved to the Trinity building to give the community event a new twist this year.

Doreen Oseien, who is helping to organize the event, said the hope was to enlist the help of people from each of the churches in the Henning area to make the event a community gathering. The live nativity will begin at 4:30 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 11 and last approximately 30 minutes.

Henning students create hats, pillows

The Henning School third and fourth grade students created fleece hats and pillows with members of the 4-H this past week. Donna Geiser, from a local 4-H Club, organized the event and taught the kids about how important it is to recycle and keep the planet clean. The fleece came from recycled products from many different local areas. The students had to figure out math problems to see how a little bit of recycled products from everyone goes a long ways. The students were very grateful for the opportunity to make the pillows and were able to see the impact that recycling makes. Pictured above are students in Katie Muckenhirnís and Heather Brieseís third grade classes, as well as Ryan Emterís fourth grade students.
