The 23rd Annual Community Christmas Dinner will be in a new location this year. For 22 years this delightful charitable event has been held at the Frontier Restaurant, however, there is a new venue this event will be hosted at. The St. Francis Hall, adjacent to the Church will be the new home for this year.
Ginger Shoji was the the original seed that turned this amazing event into the Oak that it has become today. With Ginger having passed the torch three years ago, a new crew of volunteers have been working hard to make Christmas Day special for those that may otherwise, be alone. With that said, this dinner is not just for those alone. It is for anyone who would like to spend time with friends in a warm, comfortable social setting.
They are in need of volunteers on December 24th and the 25th.
Many have a hectic day on the 25th with their own family rituals and grandiose dinner plans, however, If a few hours on Christmas Eve-day, is possible to help chop some carrots, prep the stuffing or make some cranberry cause, a few hours can go a long way.
Of course, if someone is willing and ready to dedicate their day to giving others a Merry Christmas, the group would be very thankful for the added help.
For more information on the event or to volunteer contact Michelle Cole at 250-814-4770.
