Help wanted with annual Christmas dinner

It is time once again to call upon Santa’s helpers who want to help serve community members during our upcoming season of giving.

It is time once again to call upon Santa’s helpers who want to help serve community members during our upcoming season of giving.

For many years now, a host of helpers has prepared and given to others on Christmas Day. A wonderful dinner is prepared and served at 1 p.m. on Christmas Day. In order to prepare enough food, organizers ask that you let them know in advance that yo plan to attend. All you have to do is call 250-836-2446, or fill out a ticket at IDA or Askew’s.

If you would like to help cook, set up, decorate, wrap presents, serve or any other part, please show up for a meeting on Nov. 27 at 4:40 p.m. to help get everything organized.

Organizers are thankful for all the help and support from so many people since 1998 when the first dinner was served. Since then, close to 2,000 people have enjoyed sharing in the Christmas spirit of giving and receiving.

There have been many sponsors over the years, and many have donated presents, turkeys and food items. Organizers try to have enough presents for everyone who attends.

You can drop off any donated items with Diana at the Seniors Centre.

Even though the event is held at the Seniors Centre, the dinner is open to everyone of all ages.

Please pass the word around.

Organizers are looking forward to a wonderful Christmas dinner and sharing during this season of giving.

Submitted by Diana K. Stooshnov, community dinner co-ordinator.
