Dinner invitation extended

The fifth annual Christmas Together dinner takes place Wednesday, Christmas Day

Christmas is not a time to be alone.

And to ensure such situations are avoided, everyone is invited to the fifth annual Christmas Together dinner Wednesday, Christmas Day.

“It has become a community event,” 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.

Also invited are those who struggle to put food on the table.

“We don’t care about a person’s status. We just want them to come to dinner,” said organizer Kari Sargeant.

Christmas Together takes place at the St. James parish hall (St. James School), with doors opening at 2:30 p.m. There will be crafts and dinner is at 4 p.m.

Meals can also be provided to those physically unable to attend the event and transportation to Together for Christmas is available.

For a ride to the event or to have a meal delivered, call Birch at 250-545-0383 or Sargeant at 250-306-0970.
