This is an annual FREE sit-down dinner sponsored solely by generous volunteers, businesses, and donors in our community. Last year over 500 were in attendance and more are expected this year. The Community Christmas Dinner’s purpose is to share dinner and community Christmas spirit with family, neighbors, and friends. Guests will be greeted with a festive holiday scene, with Christmas decorations, a jolly welcoming committee that guides guests to their seats as if everyone is family. Guests will be served a holiday feast including turkey, ham, potatoes and gravy, dinner rolls, vegetables, and choice of pie for dessert. Children attending the event will also get to meet Santa Claus. Each year the dinner planning committee gathers around October to plan the event. The committee asks for turkey and ham donations and volunteers for various stages of the preparation. To get involved with this year’s event or make a tax deductible contribution, please contact Abundant Grace Church at 928-855-3689.
