The 30th annual Earl Naswell Community Christmas Dinner will be held, as usual, on Christmas Day.

The free meal for those who need it happens in the upstairs hall in the Filberg Centre in Courtenay.

“Come and enjoy a nourishing dinner with all the trimmings, cooked and served by Valley volunteers,” says longtime organizer Gerry Smith.

If you like to volunteer your services, you could set up the hall, including tables. You could also help in the kitchen by peeling potatoes and preparing vegetables.

Other duties include serving dinner and general cleanup of the hall after dinner, including putting tables and chairs away.

Phone Rob James at 250-702-3896 to volunteer. To donate cash or food, Call Gerry Smith at 250-338–7858.
