Lead image The love story of Christmas is celebrated and displayed in a Nativity scene project

Jean McCorkhill has a soft spot in her heart for a love story at Christmas. And she can’t imagine a better one than the love story that features a mother, a father and a child—and the best Christmas gift that’s ever been given. With that belief in her heart, McCorkhill embraced the opportunity to be part of the continuing effort to emphasize the true meaning of Christmas and help make central Indiana the “Outdoor Nativity Scene Capital of the United States.”
