The Community Christmas Dinner Committee is at present planning to hold an in-person dinner this year. There will be a few small changes to help ensure the safety of our guests.
The event will be held at the Perry Elks Lodge Saturday, Dec. 25. Guests will be required to wear a mask at all times while in the building except when seated at their tables. Tables will be spaced out as individual tables seating 4, 6 & 8 persons.
Volunteers assisting with the dinner will be required to wear masks at all times. We would ask that those volunteering be vaccinated persons. We will begin accepting volunteers after Thanksgiving.
Serving will take place from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. In past years we have been inundated with guests at the very beginning of the service period. This year we would ask that those who can should try to come a little later to allow us to better keep our crowd spaced out.
We encourage anyone who is uncomfortable with in-person dining to take advantage of our delivery service or carryout pickup. We will begin taking orders for those services after Thanksgiving and will provide more information at a later date.
