Donkey to be the star in Aireys Christmas carols
A HUMBLE donkey will be centre stage in the nativity pageant at this year’s Community Carols in Aireys Inlet.
A group of enthusiastic children from Aireys Inlet Primary School are again coming together to perform a play depicting the story of Jesus’ birth.
The play, The Donkey’s Christmas, is all performed in rhyming couplets. The donkey learns that the circumstances of Jesus’ birth bring the message that there is greatness in humility.
“The children are all having great fun rehearsing their parts, although the two who will be wearing the donkey suit are hoping for a cool evening,” event organiser Mary Bremner said.
The evening is organised by the Combined Churches of Aireys Inlet (Anglican, Catholic and Uniting).
A band of local musicians will accompany the singing of favourite carols.
The event will be held in the Aireys Inlet Community Hall on December 8 starting at 7.30pm.
The organisers are asking everyone who comes along to bring a Christmas gift or financial donation, to be distributed this year through the Anglican Church, to needy families in the district. Entry will be by gold coin donation to cover expenses.
