Between the three performances of the Live Nativity, we had some great entertainment inside (in addition to some delicious cookies and hot chocolate). Special thanks to  St. Luke Lutheran School 3rd and 4th graders, the Haven Alleluia Chorale, Haven III resident Bill Champion and Maintenance Staff Member Sam Scott for playing, singing and leading the crowd in Christmas carols!

We also would like to thank the residents of Haven II for hosting this event, Saxonburg Fire Police for traffic control and all of our OUTSTANDING staff and volunteers for their time and enthusiasm in helping to share the Christmas message.

As the world celebrates Christmas, we join together and openly proclaim the true meaning of this miraculous event. We offer thanks to God for sending his only Son, Jesus Christ. We wish you and your family a Blessed Christmas!
