The Hardisty Community Christmas Dinner is becoming a tradition! On December 8th we had our 5th annual Hardisty Community Christmas Meal and served a free wonderful turkey dinner for approximately 250 guests from the community. Sixteen different Christian Churches and organizations as well as South East Seniors Association and Hardisty School provided space, setup and volunteered at this marvelous community dinner.
We had a wide range of guests all the way from infants to seniors and from all walks of life. It was great for the Hardisty Community to share a meal together. We enjoyed the Salvation Army Band as well as piano music for caroling. Guests and volunteers enjoyed getting to know one another and sharing the Christmas spirit. The many children and adults were all excited about the visit from Santa Claus.
We would like to acknowledge donation of the excellent AV services from Skyeboat Productions (AV), photography by Jason Kane, the donation of coffee from Capilano Starbucks and generous donations of supplies from both Capilano Safeway and Capilano Canadian Tire. Thank you for the excellent turkey, gravy, stuffing and cranberry sauce that was catered by A Capella Catering and for the hardworking volunteer kitchen crew that peeled all those potatoes and carrots and provided such a delicious meal.
