The 16th annual McPherson Community Christmas Dinner will take place on Christmas Day, Dec. 25.
The Christmas Community Dinner is brought to the community by those who organized last week's McPherson Community Thanksgiving Dinner.
Verla Thomason, director of the event, said she wanted to emphasize the importance of the community and its support for the dinners each year. She said without volunteers, there would be no dinner.
The dinner will begin at 11:30 a.m. Dec. 25 at the McPherson Community Building, and end at 1:30 p.m. Participants will receive a free meal and a “goody bag” to take home.
To make reservations for the dinner, call 241-1292. Reservations will be taken until Dec. 22.
If you would like to volunteer for the dinner, you can call 245-0313. For more information, you can contact Thomason at 241-0035.
