Annual Naswell dinner at Filberg

The free Earl Naswell Community Christmas Dinner is open to everyone.

The 31st annual Earl Naswell Community Christmas Dinner will be held again this year at noon on Christmas Day in the upper hall of the Filberg Centre in downtown Courtenay.

This free dinner is open to everyone wishing to attend; guests from all walks of life are invited to come together and share some Comox Valley Christmas spirit.

Organizers have again been overwhelmed by the number of volunteers who have chosen to spend a few hours of their own Christmas to help prepare for the dinner.

They are ready to don their Elf hats to ensure everyone has a Very Merry Christmas!

Through hard work and the huge generosity of many local businesses and individuals, a mountain of turkeys, veggies, desserts and other supplies have been collected.

Chef Andrew is ready to put together another big feast for one and all.

A note to those volunteering to setup and prepare the dinner — we are planning on getting together to do this at noon on Dec. 24 instead of the usual later time of 4:30 p.m.

For more information, contact Rob at 250-702-3896.
