It’s back! The Community Christmas Dinner is no doubt well-known in North Grenville, even amongst those who have never had the pleasure of attending. It’s about more than just the food – it has always been about the spirit of giving, and the offer of joyous Christmas socializing which one could argue is even more warming for the soul than hot turkey with all the trimmings.
The Times will have more information on the Community Christmas Dinner in our last issue of the year, December 21. In the meantime, it’s important to spread awareness about the need for volunteers, without whom the Dinner would not be possible.
This year’s dinner will once again be held at the Kemptville Christian Reformed Church on County Road 18. It will be a buffet style dinner offered on Christmas Day, December 25 from 1 pm to 3 pm.
Do you have some time on your hands on Christmas Day? Consider volunteering! You’ll be a part of something special, something that represents the caring, giving spirit of North Grenville. If you’re not available, which is understandable on what is perhaps the busiest holiday of the year, then consider spreading the word to others about the possibility of volunteering.
Gord Logan is this year’s event coordinator. Anyone who would like more information on volunteering is encouraged to contact Gord at [email protected] or 613-258-6402.
