Christmas dinner offered by church

Agassiz All Saints hoping to serve up meal and companionship on Christmas Day

A group of volunteers at the Agassiz All Saints Church is hoping to make Christmas Day a little warmer for some people.

They have decided to hold a special Christmas dinner for the community, at 2 p.m. on Christmas Day. There will be no cost for the dinner, but donations will be accepted.

Marceline Billis said they are hoping to draw in single people or couples who have no one else to share the holidays with.

But first, they need to know how many to cook for. To attend, they are asking that people RSVP so they can buy just the right amount of food.

The volunteers will all be doing the cooking, from the turkey to the cranberry sauce.

“We would like to know how many people would be interested in coming,” Billis said.

To RSVP, phone Marceline at 604-796-0560.
