Community Christmas dinner a true team effort

December 20, 2013

Anyone wanting to enjoy a hot, homecooked Christmas dinner on Dec. 25 – featuring smoked turkeys, prime rib and all the trimmings – is invited to the First United Methodist Church in Bishop. This is the second year that volunteers with the FUMC have organized the annual community event after the Bishop Senior Center became unable to continue the tradition in 2012.

The holly’s hung, the guitars are strung, the tables are set, the turkey is cooked, no one’s overlooked. That’s the bright scene that awaits everyone when the Bishop Community Christmas Dinner arrives.
For the second year in a row, the come-one-come-all event will be held from 12:30-3 p.m. on Dec. 25, Christmas Day in the First United Methodist Church hall, 205 N. Fowler St. “Last year we served more than 300 people,” said key event organizer Laura Smith. This year, perhaps more will break bread, sing carols and share in the spirit of Christmas in the “nice, large, warm, beautiful facility” that FUMC is donating for the event.
As a matter of fact, from start to finish the holiday dinner event is “an absolute community effort, pulling together resources from all over,” Smith said. “It’s amazing what our community does,” starting with the event flyers which Alex Printing designed and donated.
