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.
