CHRISTMAS IN COUNTRY
DECEMBER 25, 2014

HELLO:
MERRY CHRISTMAS! AND WELCOME TO CHRISTMAS IN THE COUNTRY. I'M TYNE MORGAN.
AND I'M CLINTON GRIFFITHS. OVER THE NEXT 30 MINUTES, WE'LL BRING YOU STORIES OF THE SEASON. SOME WILL ENTERTAIN, OTHERS WILL ENLIGHTEN...AND THEY WILL ALL GIVE YOU REASON TO CELEBRATE.
BARN:
THE BIG BEAUTIFUL RED BARN WE'RE STANDING NEAR IS OWNED BY THE ST. JOSEPH COUNTY INDIANA PARKS SYSTEM. IT ORIGINALLY SERVED A LOCAL CATHOLIC ORDER - THE SISTERS OF THE HOLY CROSS. THIS YEAR IT WAS ADDED TO THE NATIONAL REGISTER OF HISTORIC PLACES. WE'LL GIVE YOU A TOUR OF THIS MAGNIFICENT BARN LATER IN THE SHOW.
ROCKEFELLER CHRISTMAS:
THE BIG BEAUTIFUL RED BARN WE'RE STANDING NEAR IS OWNED BY THE ST. JOSEPH COUNTY INDIANA PARKS SYSTEM. IT ORIGINALLY SERVED A LOCAL CATHOLIC ORDER - THE SISTERS OF THE HOLY CROSS. THIS YEAR IT WAS ADDED TO THE NATIONAL REGISTER OF HISTORIC PLACES. WE'LL GIVE YOU A TOUR OF THIS MAGNIFICENT BARN LATER IN THE SHOW.
TEASE:
NEXT WE'LL PAY TRIBUTE TO ONE OF THE MOST POPULAR CHRISTMAS SONGS OF ALL TIME - AS IT STIRS UP IMAGES OF ROASTING AN OFTEN-FORGOTTEN TREE NUT, AND LATER, JOHN PHIPPS SHARES HIS MESSAGE OF THE HOLIDAY SEASON.
GREAT AM BARNS:
THIS PICTURESQUE RED BARN HAS BECOME RATHER FAMOUS IN THIS PART OF NORTHERN INDIANA. IT WAS ADDED TO THE NATIONAL REGISTRY OF HISTORIC PLACES JUST THIS YEAR.
IT HAS QUITE A STORY TO TELL. IT WAS ONCE OWNED BY THE SISTERS OF THE HOLY CROSS. THE CATHOLIC ORDER HAS BEEN SERVING THE COMMUNITY SINCE THE 1840'S. PART OF THEIR MINISTRY INCLUDED THE CONSTRUCTION OF A SCHOOL - WHICH GREW INTO SAINT MARY'S COLLEGE.THE ORDER HAD ITS OWN FARM TO FEED THE NUNS AND STUDENTS FOR GENERATIONS. AND THOUGH THE SISTERS NO LONGER OWN THE FARM, THE LIVESTOCK BARNS STILL STAND AS A TESTAMENT TO THEIR MINISTRY...
CAPITAL ARRIVAL:
DURING THE WINTER MONTHS - IF THERE'S ENOUGH SNOW - THE PARK OPERATES A TUBING HILL AND CROSS COUNTRY SKIING. PEOPLE RENT THOSE ITEMS OUT OF THIS BARN. MEANWHILE…THE CAPITOL CHRISTMAS TREE CONTINUED ITS LONG JOURNEY TO THE NATION'S CAPITOL.
TEASE:
THANK YOU FOR JOINING US. WE HOPE YOU ENJOYED OUR CHRISTMAS GIFT TO YOU.
AND AS 2014 COMES TO A CLOSE, WE THANK YOU FOR SPENDING TIME WITH US EACH AND EVERY WEEK.FROM OUR FAMILIES TO YOURS, WE WISH YOU A MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HEALTHY AND PROSPEROUS 2015.
