Last year we served close to 525 meals, including Mobile Meals. Besides our wonderful meal, we have entertainment, prizes, gifts, Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus and most of all we have a great time and fellowship with families and friends. We have volunteers to come and help, from all around the world.

This year since we lost Harold Hale, I have received a call from Harold’s granddaughters, Gracie and Sydney Hale, who will try to be in charge of the prizes and gifts this year.

Cliff and Carol Johnson will furnish the entertainment. James W. Kennedy will be in charge of the kitchen.

This year we are in need of about 400 pounds of turkey. We need stuffing, cranberry sauce, green beans, instant mashed potatoes, bread, desserts and candy and fruit bags for about 600.

Contact Dwight or Diana Kennedy at 405-564-4755.

Editor’s Note: This letter came in from the Kennedy family. They have put on a free Community Christmas Eve Dinner for all of El Reno since the 1980s. A great supporter of the dinner, Harold Hale, died earlier this year.
