*** Unfortunately due to the COVID-19 pandemic response, Creemore’s Christmas Dinner is cancelled. We will miss the great food and festivities but it is all for the greater good. Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. All the best to you in 2021. ***
Over the years many of our community have been involved with the preparation and/or partaking of this wonderful meal. Volunteering is a terrific way to entertain your children, meet other local people, and to celebrate the Christmas holiday with friends and neighbours.
There are many ways to get involved — for the entire event or simply for a few hours. Note the schedule is tentative and subject to change.
- 10:00am to 2pm – “Deck the Legion Hall” Elves for unpacking and decorating.
- 10:00am – Kitchen Elves for food preparation. Bring your own paring knife.
- 2:00pm – Kitchen Elves, dessert layout, finishing touches.
- 4:00pm – Greeters, caregivers, Master of Ceremonies, meal blessing, people drivers (pickup & take home).
- 4:30pm – Festivities begin – All are welcome.
- 5:00pm – Drivers (home deliveries).
- 5:30pm – Christmas dinner & dessert, tea/coffee.
- 7:00pm – Entertainment (people dependent – do you have a story, a song or a talent that you would like to share?)
- 8:30pm – Dishes and Clean-up.
- 11:00am Elves for organizing and packing away, ready for next year. Drivers to take remaining food to food bank(s).
If your Christmas schedule is already tight and you would like to contribute in some other way, please consider a financial, food or in-kind donation.
