Students and teachers at Elgin Park Secondary are once again preparing to host the school’s Christmas Community Dinner.
Set for Wednesday, Dec. 17, the occasion will mark the event’s 10th year of reaching out to those who might not otherwise have a festive meal.
Held at the 13484 24 Ave. school, it is organized by students and teachers from all grades and departments, who prepare a full turkey dinner for up to 150 people, then serve it up in holiday style, complete with dessert and entertainment.
Last year, 135 people turned out for the dinner.
To participate this year, RSVP by 3 p.m. Dec. 12, to 604-538-6678 (lines are open 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday to Friday) with contact information and the number of guests.
On the night of the dinner, doors open at 5 p.m. and the meal will be served at 5:30 p.m. The event will wrap up at 7:30 p.m.
