Students and teachers at Elgin Park Secondary are gearing up for a Christmas tradition that warms hearts and fills tummies.

Teacher Sinead Hibbert said the school’s annual Community Christmas Dinner – which reaches out to those who might not otherwise have a festive meal – will take place this year on Dec. 11.

Held at the 13484 24 Ave. school, it will include a full turkey dinner – prepared and served by students – and student entertainment.

Doors open at 5 p.m., and dinner will be served at 5:30 p.m.

Hibbert emphasized that the effort is not a one-man show. It involves students and teachers from all grades and departments.

“Everybody’s pitched in to help,” she said.

Time is running out to RSVP for the meal. With space limited to 150, those wanting to join in are asked to call the school at 604-538-6678 (Monday-Friday, between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m.) by 3 p.m. Dec. 4 with their names, contact information and number of guests.
