Christmas dinner to be held at Legion on Dec. 25

In the spirit of the season, Santa and her elf are already hard at work making sure everyone in Rimbey and area enjoys

In the spirit of the season, Santa and her elf are already hard at work making sure everyone in Rimbey and area enjoys a delicious Christmas dinner amid lots of laughter and good cheer.

Santa, otherwise known as Gayle Rondeel, and volunteer Harold Kenney, whose identity as an elf is a well-kept secret, are in the midst of making plans to hold a Christmas dinner celebration at the Rimbey Legion Dec. 25 at 2 p.m.

The celebration is to include a delicious dinner, a singsong, a time to visit, share old memories, make some new ones and simply enjoy the company of others on this Yuletide holiday.

However, to ensure the dinner party is a success befitting the holiday season, Rondeel and Kenney need volunteers to polish up their good will spirit and help out.

“We need help with everything and we need donations of food, table centres, help in the kitchen and help with entertainment. Any and all help will be very much appreciated,” said Rondeel. “Many hands make light work.”

While Christmas Day is fast approaching, Rondeel was saddened to learn that some people in the area would have no one to share a Christmas dinner with.

“We just everyone to know they have a place to come and enjoy the day with others,” she said.

Anyone interested in helping or donating to the Christmas dinner may contact Rondeel at 403-843-6864 or Kenney at 403-843-6289.
