Tucked away safely

This one is about the miniature Christmas Manger that is placed every year on the front lawn of a home on Main Street.

The miniature Christmas manger in front of Annah Dupuis house @ 348 Main street is being put away for another season.

It is stored  off season at Jay Van Arman’s barn.  It was given to Jay by Fred Berg who had it set up on Main Street for many years.  Fred, a World War II Navy fighter pilot, who landed on a carrier at night with no lights or GPS during the War. This landing could be a story of it's own. It just might be, Stay tuned.

He lived in the Old’s house across from Norwich Inn for more than 40 years until his passing. He purchased the nativity figurines in Europe after the war.
He would be pleased to know  that Jay and Annah still carry on the tradition annually.

Getting ready to be put away for another season yet to come
