Rotary Club hosts 40th Annual Christmas Dinner in 100 Mile House

‘They were all thrilled’

The Rotary Club had their 40th Annual Christmas Dinner on Dec. 1.

“It was fabulous, everybody was happy. There were 280 tickets [sold],” said Linda Jefferson, the president of the club.

Roughly 35 people were involved in making it happen whether it was with serving, cooking and/or other supporting roles.

“We start [organizing] two months ahead of time. There’s a lot of organizing that goes into doing the Christmas Dinner – lots of help, lots of support from local people. The Rotary Club organizes the whole thing though.”

Because it was the 40th year of the dinner, Jefferson and the club decided to make it a little special by raffling off two Adirondack chairs and having the tables play games.

In one game, each member of the table rolled two dice. The person who rolled the highest number got the centrepiece displayed on the table.

The games were invented by the Rotary Club to give the seniors some more entertainment and Jefferson said they loved it.

“Everybody was really happy and they liked it because it was very spacious and roomy. The food was great. They were all thrilled,” she said of the overall event. “I think we really did a good job.”
