Creemore Community Christmas Dinner serves 100
Organizers of the Creemore Community Christmas Dinner were happy to welcome 100 neighbours, friends and family to the Royal Canadian Legion for the 18th annual Christmas dinner.
The room was festive with a bevy of lit Christmas trees, an army of nutcrackers, a tiny toy train and village, and a special gingerbread house fully edible and crafted by Annette Chiasson.
This year’s traditional dinner of turkey and ham cooked by Jim Henderson and his elves garnered many compliments.
The turkeys were donated by Foodland with numerous other donations from a lot of terrific people.
The goal of the organizers is to ensure everyone has a little bit of Christmas. To that end, in addition to hosting and delivering dinners, gifts were purchased for 16 people including those at the Creedan Valley Care Community without family. As well, non-perishable food items were collected and given to The Salvation Army’s Hope Acres Addiction Treatment Centre in Glencairn.
Happily, with a significant monetary contribution from the Creemore Curling Club, enough money was raised to ensure a dinner for next year.
We really do live in a fantastic community. Many thanks to all.
