Preparations underway for annual Christmas dinner

Community support and sponsorship helps make event happen.

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

For many years now, a host of helpers has prepared and given to others a wonderful dinner that is prepared and served at 1 p.m. on Christmas Day.

The only thing we ask is for you to let us know you will be here so we can prepare enough food. 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. 24 at 4 p.m. to help us get everything organized.

We are so thankful for all the help and support from so many people since 1998 when the first dinner started. Since its inception, more than 2,000 people have enjoyed sharing in the Christmas spirit of giving and receiving.

There have been many sponsors over the years and most recently, the Salmon Arm Savings and Credit Union has been the major sponsor. Many others have donated presents, turkeys and food items. We try and have enough presents for everyone who attends. You can drop off any donated items to Diana at the Seniors Centre. Please pass the word around. We are looking forward to a wonderful Christmas Dinner and sharing during this season of giving.

Diana K. Stooshnov,

Community Dinner Co-ordinator
