Could you explain what thrill you got from stealing the Christ child from the Nativity scene at the courthouse? This Christmas crib has been put up for years with no problems. Now, last year, someone stole one of the lambs and this year, someone stole the Christ child.
Let me tell you a little of the history of this Chrismas scene. The Tiffin Masonic Lodge and the Tiffin Knights of Columbus hosted dances once a year and the profits from the dances went to buy the Christmas figures. The Knights of Columbus has been putting up and taking down this crib every year for 25 to 30 years. These figures are about 25 to 30 years old.
A couple of years ago we built a new crib. Also, the figures were repainted about eight to 10 years ago by Charles Letterhos. We never had any problems for all these years, until the last two years. We now have to purchase some new items and they will not be as nice as the old ones and will be very expensive.
Would it be in your heart to return the lamb and the Christ child or call me at (419) 447-1809 and tell me where I can pick it up, and there will be no questions asked?
