No Room at the Inn - sharing gifts

Trail Ridge is hosting the No Room at the Inn on December 5 and 6 at Trail Ridge Retirement Center in Sioux Falls.

This beautiful display of many Nativity scenes is free for the family and there will also be vendors with booths including my sister and her hairbows and headbands for girls of all ages.

You really can't afford to miss this. There will be a free will donation that will benefit the homeless in Sioux Falls. I think it is a win win event.

See you there:)

While I was typing this post I got this message from my mom:) I'll call it divine timing...

This Christmas season, we are re-gifting Christ’s birth to the Sioux Falls community. You are invited to share in the wonder of Christmas by attending the fifth annual No Room at the Inn on December 5th (6 to 8 PM) and December 6th (1 – 4 PM) at Trail Ridge Retirement Community near 69th and Louise in Sioux Falls.

No Room at the Inn is a display of unique nativity scenes from around the world - with personal reflections about each Nativity by its owner. There will also be a silent auction, holiday vendors, outstanding entertainment and refreshments. What a beautiful way to remember the wondrous story of Christ’s birth and the true reason we celebrate Christmas.

No Room at the Inn helps two organizations…who in turn help many: St. Francis House in Sioux Falls, whose mission is to “move people from homelessness to hope,” and The Greater Sioux Falls Coalition on Aging, whose mission is to educate people on the resources available for the elderly – including housing options.

We ask you to accept this gift from us – to share with your family the story of Christ’s birth, to become aware of the needs of the homeless in Sioux Falls and become a part of the solution by attending this event. For you see, a young couple currently wanders the streets of Sioux Falls looking for shelter. They are knocking on your door. Will you tell them that there is no room? Or will you agree to accept this gift from us, and in-turn pass the gift on by supporting No Room at the Inn and our efforts to help the St. Francis House and the Greater Sioux Falls Coalition on Aging?

For more information about how you can support No Room at the Inn, please call 605-339-4847 or email nrati@live.com. This event is free and open to all public.
