Agassiz fire hall takes on Christmas dinner

Santa and turkey in the works this year in Agassiz

The Agassiz Fire Department has taken on a new job this Christmas — planning a festive dinner for the community.

They’ve even invited Santa Claus, ensuring that everyone in attendance will have a jolly time.

FIrefighter Andrew Brohman said they are hoping to fill the Agassiz Agricultural Hall, for dinner and a chance to meet Santa. The turkey and ham dinner will be served by Lori’s Catering, and all proceeds from the dinner will go toward the Agassiz Harrison Community Services food bank.

Only 100 tickets will be available for the public. Many of the tickets are being given to people who use the food bank’s services, to ensure they can enjoy a holiday meal.

Brohman said the fire hall is calling upon other emergency services workers and volunteers to lend a hand for the evening.

“We’ve had a couple of groups that have said they’ll give us a hand,” he said. “It’s a great way to give back to the community, right at the time that it needs it the most.”

The doors will open at 5:45 p.m. on Dec. 20, and dinner will be served from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Tickets for the public are $20 each. They can be purchased at the Agassiz Fire Hall, Pioneer Motors and Community Services.

Brohman is eager to see the Community Christmas Dinner restored after it went dormant for a few years.

“We’re hoping for the best, and we’ll see what happens,” he said.
