Christmas Dinner for one and all in Agassiz

Harrison and Agassiz residents invited to Christmas Day dinner

The Agassiz Anglican Church is hosting a Christmas dinner for anyone and everyone who doesn’t have Christmas plans.

“We don’t want anybody to be alone on Christmas,” says organizer Marceline Billis. “Anybody can come – young and old.”

This will be the second year for the event, organized and run by volunteers from the church. Billis says the first event last year saw about 60 people come out for the traditional Christmas dinner. Each attendee will also receive two “lovely” gifts.

“People were talking about it all year long,” she shares. “It was wonderful.”

The event is free. However, there will be an opportunity to donate to the cause of an Anglican church in the Yukon that is sinking due to permafrost changes.

“For the local people there, it’s almost a second home,” Billis explains of the importance of the church there.

Doors open at 2:00 pm, with dinner at 3:00 pm. While you can just show up for the dinner, organizers would prefer if you let them know beforehand so they have an idea of numbers. You can phone Marceline Billis at 604-796-0566 if you would like to come or for more information.
