|ALISDAIR - "THE GROCER"|
Since the children were wearing the masks and hats, it was hard to tell who was who... I could only tell who Alisdair and Isobel were because I knew what clothes they were wearing! John and I were near the back when - all of a sudden - Alisdair's voice came over the microphone!

In the drama, the "Prince" (Jesus) was coming to Bethlemazoo and the storyline centered around the various townspeople and their reactions to his visit.
After the program concluded, the entertainment moved from the church sanctuary to the Christian Education Wing where goodies were served and people were given time to visit with one another. It was the fourth Christmas event in which the children had participated. This pageant was refreshingly different, however, and our brief visit to Bethlemazoo will be remembered for years to come.
