Community Christmas Dinner to be held Dec. 25th

The Lacombe Community Christmas Dinner will be held on Dec. 25th from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m. at the Lacombe Memorial Centre.

Looking for a place to go for dinner on Christmas Day?

The Lacombe Community Christmas Dinner is returning this year.

Co-organizer Cora Hoekstra said the long-running community dinner is open to everyone within the community.

“All are welcome,” she said. “Come and enjoy a turkey dinner with your neighbours.”

For the dinner, the Lacombe Memorial Centre will be transformed for the meal with decorated tables and a Christmas-like atmosphere.

“We really make it special,” said Hoekstra. “It is a nice affair.”

The dinner will be a buffet-style traditional turkey dinner with all the fixings.

Afterwards, there will be some games for those in attendance and singing of carols to round off the day.

Hoekstra said the group is expecting a couple hundred attendees but each year is different. The organizers are flexible to accommodate everyone who attends.

Bethel Christian Reformed Church is the main sponsor of the dinner, but other businesses and organizations in the community pitch in to make the dinner a reality each year.

Hoekstra said as of Dec. 11th, the group has enough volunteers to successfully run the dinner, but she encourages those who still want to volunteer their time, to attend and engage in conversation with those at the dinner who may benefit from a friendly face during the holiday season.

“Many people underestimate the value of conversation,” she said. “Come and visit for the meal. Be that friendly face at the table. Sit and engage in conversation.”

The Lacombe Community Christmas Dinner will be held on Dec. 25th from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m. at the Lacombe Memorial Centre. The dinner is free and open to everyone.
