Organizers of the annual Community Christmas Dinner held at the Morrisburg Legion expected to serve 200 meals during the event. Donations were accepted at the door, with Rev. Canon Pat Martin explaining how any profit from the meal would go to the Apple Tree Ministry of the Anglican Parish of South Dundas, which is involved in outreach ministry in the community.
The historic Winchester United Church hosted its traditional Community Christmas Dinner on Dec. 25 in the church hall. Organizers were busy Christmas morning making the final preparations for the meal which included light refreshments, a traditional Christmas dinner and local musicians performing during the event. Heather Rose says funds for the event were raised in November by the Night Train Big Band Annual Christmas Benefit Concert as well as through donations from members of the congregation and the local community.
