Congratulations to the volunteers from the city of McPherson community and surrounding area for another successful Community Christmas Dinner. The event could not have been possible without the help of about 250 volunteers who served more than 650 guests, including deliveries and carry-out meals.

Many businesses and individuals have also made this event possible through monetary and in-kind donations. Your gifts are greatly appreciated.

A special thank you to the five McPherson elementary schools and their art classes for decorating the goody bags and wall art to enhance the holiday atmosphere for both the Community Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners.

The aim of the committee is to provide a free meal to the community and surrounding area so no one would be alone on Christmas and have some place to go for the holiday.

Thank you to all of the volunteers and guests.
