Dinner puts people together

Vernon’s seventh annual Together for Christmas dinner takes place Friday

Vernon’s seventh annual Together for Christmas dinner takes place Friday and it’s for individuals or families who don’t want to be alone.

“Everyone should be somewhere at Christmas. It can be a tough day on your own,” said Ron Birch, one of the organizers.

Everyone is invited no matter their circumstances – an individual with no family nearby, seniors, a single parent with children or entire families who just want to embrace the spirit of Christmas.

And if someone is unable to get to the dinner, a meal can be delivered.

This year’s dinner, which also includes entertainment and crafts, will be held at the St. James Parish Hall (St. James School), with doors opening at 2:30 p.m. and the meal at 4 p.m.

Anyone needing a ride to the dinner or wanting a meal delivered to them can call Jae at 250-540-1120.
