A group of volunteers including club member, Tony Campos has  been serving the annual Christmas dinner for the last 14 years, at The Hedding United Methodist Church in Barre, and, delivered meals to the downtown sites of the Barre Housing Authority for the second year, with help from friends at the Universalist Unitarian Church. In all, about 290 meals were served on Christmas day with the help of many volunteers and generous donors

The group feels very lucky to have the volunteers that show up to set tables, play the piano, carve turkeys and hams, make mashed potatoes and stuffing, deliver or serve meals, cut and serve pies, wash dishes and so much more. They also feel that they are lucky to have received donations of pies, potatoes, turkeys, hams, rolls, cider and milk to serve to the guests, as well as financial donations which help offset the cost of purchasing some of the meal.

No one leaves hungry and most are happy to have had a good meal and good company on such a special day.
