The Earl Naswell Christmas Dinner was held again this year, at noon on Dec. 25 in the Florence Filberg Center. Close to 200 guests enjoyed the full turkey dinner served with all the trimmings and desserts you could imagine. I would like to send out a huge thank you to all the businesses and individuals that helped us gather the food and supplies to make this free annual community event a success.
Many new volunteers helped out this year, on the 24th to decorate the hall and prepare for the dinner, and on the 25th, to serve the dinner and spread some Christmas cheer. It would not happen without all this help, so a big thanks to the new volunteers, and to our ‘regulars’, some who have been making this event a big part of their Christmas day for the past 20 years.
It was a surprise to see Earl walk in the door, after hearing of his recent accident, we were all happy to see him as spry as ever. This year celebrated the 32nd annual dinner since he first started the event. Best wishes for a healthy 2015 Earl, I hope you enjoyed this legacy you created.
