Last Cast
The Double Branch Baptist Church will have its drive-through nativity scene beginning at 6 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. You don't want to miss Johnny Baker from Central National Bank riding a camel. Yes, folks. The scene actually has a live camel. I just hope Johnny doesn't wear his spurs! He may become camel food.
