A huge thank you to all for helping make Christmas Dinner happen this year!
It was a big challenge this year with a few bumps along the road. In the end, we were able to make the day a little brighter for those who dined with us. It was reported that guests were very appreciative. We feel comfortable that everything was done to keep this holilday event as safe as possible, from the pandemic standpoint, for both guests and volunteers.
This year we estimate that we served between 625 and 650 guests. The meal service was scheduled to begin at 1:00pm but with a line forming and heavy rain, we were able to start at 12:20. The seating tent was appreciated by guests. We had enough seating, even as spread out as we made it, that no one had to wait for a seat. Some guests chose to take the meal with them in the insulated pouches we provided.
Thank you again to all those who participated in this years event and we hope you are all staying safe and are enjoying the New Year.
