Yuletide Feast celebrates togetherness

The 16th Annual Yuletide Christmas Feast is coming up Tuesday at the Ramada Convention Centre.

The 16th Annual Yuletide Christmas Feast is coming up Tuesday at the Ramada Convention Centre.

The dinner is a gift from members of the Williams Lake community, to anyone experiencing lean times this season say Child Development Centre event organizers.

Lean times need not mean only shortage of funds for a traditional feast, but perhaps lean on company to celebrate the season.

The Yuletide Dinner is held at the Ramada Convention Centre with help from manager  Lindsey Gasparini and all the staff who donate many hours of volunteer time to help with preparing and serving the dinner, says organizer Vanessa Riplinger.

Last year the dinner  fed more than 700 people. This year participation is expected to increase.

The dinner will be served at the Ramada Convention Centre between 4 and 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 10.

Help from the community is requested in sponsorship for the dinner.

The cost of sponsoring an individual plate is $10. The cost of sponsoring a family for the dinner is $40.

The dinner promises to be a joyful and festive occasion with great food and entertainment.

People can make their donations at the Child Development Centre at 690 North Second Avenue.

The Yuletide Dinner Group is a registered group for tax receipt purposes.

“Thanks to all the volunteers that are already promising to make the Yuletide Dinner wonderful,” Riplinger says.

“Thanks in advance to all the support anticipated from our generous community and welcome to all of you coming to dine, and joining in the festivities.”
