Christmas dinner organizers seek food donations

December 5, 2011


Organizers of the annual Community Christmas Dinner are seeking donations of turkeys, hams and pies.

The group is seeking 55 20-pound turkeys, 40 five-pound hams and many pies, according to Deb Engstrom, one of the organizers. Anyone who would like to donate meat is asked to call or email Engstrom at 330-3105 or before Dec. 15.

Engstrom said pies can be dropped off after 6 a.m. Christmas Day at First United Methodist Church, 946 Vt., or she will arrange for them to be picked up if donors call or email her.

The free dinner will be from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Christmas Day at the church.

should one organize a big dinner if one doesn't have food to feed those who come??? Like sponsoring a drag race with no place to drag race. Oh, for those of you who live in Lawrence a drag race is not a foot race involving two or more people dressed as the opposit sex. It is where two cars race each other in a straight line for a quarter mile...

Boy you don't know your bible. My guess is the dinner will be lovely. You might think about calling and volunteering help or a ham or turkey, if you are worried there won't be enough.

It is wonderful to live in a place where 1200 people can be fed through generous food and monetary donations from community members. I'm not sure I understand your analogy.
