Community Christmas Dinner open to all

Evening includes full turkey dinner and entertainment

The 23rd Annual Community Christmas Dinner, sponsored by the Christian churches of 100 Mile House and area, will be held on Dec. 10 at the 100 Mile Community Hall.

Gyl Connaty, who chairs the event with Susan Schuurman, says the dinner is free and open to families, singles and seniors.

We use it as an outreach, especially for those who might not otherwise have the ability to cook a Christmas dinner. We love to invite people who don’t have fellowship or family to share Christmas dinner.”

The doors open a 5:30 p.m. and the turkey dinner is served at 6.

Ingrid Mapson, who sings and plays keyboards, will provide entertainment. The dinner will also be served individually and not buffet style.

There is a carol sing-along afterward, and there will be small door prizes for both parents and children.

We get great support from the churches in the area, and all the volunteers. There is about 50 volunteers every year.

“Anyone within the community can share the spirit of a Christian Christmas dinner.”
