Thank you to many volunteers who made this project possible. Michelle Juranek responded to Mrs. Lyssa’s plea for volunteers right away. Dale Juranek and Jim Mayo cut out all the wood figures. Mrs. Mayo (Mrs. Tvrdy’s Mom and Aquinas MS teacher) for help with the finishing touches. Thank you to Cliff and Sean Kovar (’20 Aquinas graduate) for giving advice on clear coating, bracing, and secure outdoor display options. Cliff and Sean spent their Christmas Eve putting up the final display in front of the St. Thomas Aquinas Chapel. Thank you to the Aquinas Journalism Class and Deb Svec for taking pictures of the progress of the project. A final thank you to Fr. Timmerman for the permission and support to see this project through to celebrate our Catholic faith and the birth of Christ.
