The Committee for the Restoration of the Weirton Nativity Set recently received a grant award from the John C. Williams Charitable Trust which is administered through the PNC Charitable Trust Grant Review Committee. The grant will help the committee purchase the remaining statues to complete the nativity set. After this year, there will be all new statues along with a new stable built by men on the committee. “We are blessed and thankful to be able to upgrade and complete this set and to be able to carry on this tradition for years to come,” a spokesperson said. On hand for the presentation were, from left, Michaela DiFonzo, Mary Ann DiFonzo, Tina Greer, Bob DiFonzo, Susan Vargo of PNC, Angela Mazur, Ron Greer and Doug Finton.
