Lafayette, IN’s Living Nativity 2018

There are two stories entangled with the word, “Christmas.” There’s the story of the white bearded man who comes with gifts and eats the cookies we leave out for him. The other celebration is the birth of a baby. Linus from Charlie Brown puts it in great words saying, “for behold, I bring unto you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the City of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.’ And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host, praising God, and saying, ‘Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.’ That’s what Christmas is all about, Charlie Brown.“ The annual event of The Living Nativity  here in Lafayette, IN really makes the story of Jesus’ birth come alive!   Details about The Living Nativity This event is free! Thanks to the host, Faith Church. You can drive through it or walk through it. Both are narrated by an audio telling of the birth of Jesus. It’s live so that means people the people participating in the scenes are acting out their roles. This is a cast of over 100 people according to the Faith Church Website. There are even a few living animals! This event has 14 scenes. They begin at the Creation of the World and end with the telling of the second coming of Jesus.

Spotlight on the Long Center of Performing Arts

  Theaters have their own personality, and they themselves seem to tell a story. The walls are intricate, each theater having its own unique design. The seats are customarily velvet and wonderful, and they position you to see the stage from any point of view in the building. There is nothing like watching a performance in a packed-full venue. The benefits abound: stillness together, laughter together, and the final “Hooray” at the end of a great show. There are many moments to remember when you see a show at the theater! Fortunately, the long time residents of Lafayette, IN have an appreciation for the arts. We have our very own Center for the Performing Arts right here named The Long Center.   History of the Long Center The Long Center of Performing Arts website provides this information: “After the Dryfus Theater was destroyed by fire in 1914, Lafayette was without a legitimate playhouse until 1920 when the Luna Amusement Company announced plans to construct a new theater. Designed by Nicol, Scholer and Hoffman and built by A.E. Kemmer, the building is a significant architectural example of the Neo Classical design.  It was christened the Mars Theater after a rural Lafayette woman submitted the name in a contest that won her $25… Although the Mars Theater was originally built as a vaudeville house, just six years after its opening, the Roaring 20’s revolution of talking movies soon upstaged the touring troupes.  The period’s top names were familiar faces on the silver screen. ​The Mars continued operating primarily as a movie house until 1977 when Mr. Irving Long, president of the... read more

Listen to what Mike & Mike think about the Romanski Group!

They are hands down THE best real estate team in the whole freaking country. They CANNOT be topped. Genuine, kind, professional, knowledgeable, fun, friendly and whether buying or selling, they have your back. If you are selling they have a marketing program that cannot be matched. It absolutely does not get better then these two and their team!! I’ve lost track of the # of homes Erin & Jim have helped us/me buy and sell. At least 3 or more.
