NCLL Offers Crèche Collection Tour

Tuesday 5, 2017

The Northern Center for Lifelong Learning is offering a self-guided tour of a crèche collection that includes more than 300 pieces from around the world. The event will take place from 2-4 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 21, and 7-9 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 4, at 128 Timber Lane in Marquette.

A crèche is a model that represents the scene of Jesus Christ’s birth. NCLL member Carol Margriff began collecting crèche’s in 1966 and has shared them with the community over the past 50 years. 

The cost is free, but attendees are encouraged to donate $5 to the Marquette County Habitat for Humanity. Register by Thursday, Dec. 14, by calling 227-2979. For more information, contact Carol Margriff at 249-9975 or
