Update: The owner retrieved the possessions, and the borough is taking no further action.
A mini-nativity scene mysteriously appeared on the Ellwood City Borough Municipal Building property near the main entrance on Lawrence Avenue.
The tiny figurines were displayed in front of and on the Fireman’s Memorial. In addition, there was a sign that read “Ellwood, the city with the Nativity.”
At approximately 11:15 a.m., Borough Manager Bob Villella removed the sign and Nativity and placed the items in a box. The items will be available for the owner to claim.
It is unknown who placed the sign and mini-nativity scene and what day and time it was placed. An employee of a downtown store reported seeing the sign on Saturday.
