Creemore Community Christmas Dinner
Plans are underway for Creemore’s Community Christmas Dinner, happening at the Legion on Dec. 25.
Organizer Donna Baylis said 60 people have already signed up to take part in the feast prepared by chef Jim Henderson and his many helpers.
“Attendees include grandparents whose family celebrations are on another day, parents whose children are unable to come home for the holidays, families who need greater table space,” said Baylis. “The reasons for attending are as varied as the individuals. Yet all have one thing in common, an appreciation for being with friends and neighbours on this special day of the year.”
Festivities begin at 4:30 p.m., with dinner and home deliveries starting around 5:30 p.m.
If possible, the Legion requests a donation of non-perishable food item, and a monetary donation for the dinner is always appreciated. Donations can be made at the event or at TD Bank (#2320 0330-5202657).
Volunteers are needed to help with setup on Dec. 24 (beginning at 10 a.m.), emcee, entertainment, serving or cleanup on Dec. 25; or pack down on Dec. 26 (from 11 a.m.).
All are welcome and registration in advance is appreciated but not necessary.
