There is only ONE MORE weekend to enjoy the Living Nativity. Make sure to check out the new baby goats, baby calves and baby kittens who wander the barn. The kittens are a delightful surprise as they crawl under a stall wall to listen to the telling of the Christmas story through with a donkey or goat as a story starter.

Christmas in Murdock

The Christmas trees in Murdock have become an annual tradition. I forgot to count how many trees are in Murdock. So here is a trivia question.

Thank you to all the volunteers that decorate Main Street with not only Christmas trees, but placed wreaths on the fences and poles. I love Christmas trees and couldn't get enough. So you may see me stalking the trees with my camera as soon as it snows. Nothing says Christmas than snow gracing Christmas trees.

Don't worry, I'm not wishing for a foot of snow, and not for it to last all winter. Just a white Christmas.

It's not just Main Street decked out in Christmas and Holiday Cheer. Drive around town and you will find Christmas surprises around every corner.

Presenting the Cast of In-Laws, Outlaws, and Other People (That Should be Shot) We are so excited to have so many returning Born-In-A-Barn players as well as some new faces! Performances start December 7th, and remember, tickets make great holiday gifts, so be sure to reserve yours now: http://bit.ly/LofteTickets

More about In-Laws, Outlaws, and Other People (That Should be Shot): It is 6 pm and the Douglas family is busily preparing for their annual Christmas Eve dinner. After robbing a neighborhood liquor store, high strung and irritable Tony, and his dim-witted side-kick Vinny find themselves in need of a hide-out. A comic treasure that is sure to leave you in stitches while celebrating the true meaning of Christmas.

Night Before Christmas - Contest Delayed to Christmas 2020

I personally apologize for anyone that was planning on participating in our Twas the Night Before Christmas - 2019 Story Telling Contest we announced before Christmas. John Harrington ( Computer John )

We wanted to create awareness of our new www.CassPod.com Cass Area PodCast Portal. We wanted to invite folks to try their skills in a fun Holiday way. Unfortunately I did not consider that in-order for such a contest ( seems simple enough ) has many moving parts and in order to be fair and successful - many volunteers would be required. Especially several credible and non-partial Judges - are required minimum of 3 Judges and as of 12/10/2019 we have only one. We therefore decided to delay the contest to next year. Sorry about that. If anyone has been diligently practicing, please email / share your MP3 w/special email address: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. we will make avail at www.CassPod.com for everyone to enjoy. Good News! We have contracted with a genuine Grandmother - to record this famous poem - to share with everyone - on 12/24/2019 - we will post it at www.CassPod.com and on the 12/18/2019 Newsletter ( so you can listen together and get those Kiddo's to sleep on 12/24/2019

Again sorry for my poor preparation. Email Me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. w/comments & or suggestions.
