Local dentist Dr. Danny Gilchrist sweetens up some hot chocolate with marshmallows at the Dec. 7 Nativity Blessing in Plover.
Bitter cold winds didn’t deter nearly 70 area students in grades one through six for the 11th annual event, held at St. Bronislava Church in Plover.
The youngsters are all currently enrolled in CCD classes.
The event featured a welcome from Plover Village Administrator Dan Mahoney, quiz questions to the students by parish pastor Fr. Ed Shuttleworth, and a blessing with the Knights of Columbus, with the Fourth-Degree Honor Guard presiding.
The blessing ended with two Christmas songs, and the evening concluded with hot chocolate and treats for all back inside the church.
