Salvation Army to host X-mas dinner

Any seniors wanting to attend the Salvation Army's Christmas dinner in Williams Lake are welcome, said Captain Randy Kadonaga

Any seniors wanting to attend the Salvation Army’s Christmas dinner in Williams Lake are welcome, said Captain Randy Kadonaga

“There will be a turkey dinner and music starting at noon and running until 2 p.m. on Christmas Day,” Kadonaga said.

For seniors with mobility issues, there is a level entry entrance at the back of the buildling.

“If anyone has difficulty getting to the dinner, they can call us at 250-392-2423,” Kadnoga said.

It would be best if they called in ahead of time, either Dec. 23 or 24 to give drivers a head start, he added. In 2012, 150 people, including volunteers attended the dinner.

Kadonaga also confirmed he and his wife Claudine are retiring from the Salvation Army. Claudine’s last day of work was Nov. 28. Kadonaga will be finished on Dec. 31.

The couple has served with the Salvation Army Corps for 12 and a half years and in Williams Lake for five and half years.

But the Kadonagas are staying close by, he said.

“We have property in Likely and are going to move there.”

They are hoping to go into running a small business.

“Something that’s a little less hectic,” Kadonaga said.

He is hopeful the Salvation Army will have someone in place to replace them some time in early January.
