During this season of hope and peace on earth, Tracy and Mark Linebarger, and their many volunteers are once again serving a free Community Christmas Eve Dinner from 3 – 6 PM at St, Mary’s Academy. But unfortunately, as you may have heard, someone is going door to door, asking elderly and shut-ins if they would like a home delivered meal on Christmas Eve and then asking for donations.
It is time for the Center’s annual Christmas Breakfast this coming Saturday. Once again the breakfast is sponsored by Mill Creek Point who have lined up “Harmony of the Gorge” to provide the musical entertainment and of course Santa and his mischievous little helper: Linda. The menu will be flapjacks with fruit topping, scrambled eggs, ham, fruit and your favorite beverage all for only $5.00. Serving starts at 8:00 and will end a little later at 10:00.
Because of the success of the last holiday bake sale, Meals-on-Wheels is hosting one more delicious goody sale Thursday the 15th – before, during and after lunch. Every dollar from the bake sale helps support the important work of Meals-on-Wheels. And yes they still could use more drivers.
