Manchester to Hold its 23rd Community Christmas Dinner
This will be number 23. Yes, the 23rd Christmas Dinner, in Manchester Center, by the town, for the town. There are lots of familiar faces year after year, and new ones that are welcomed with open arms. It is a chance for folks to break bread together, and for some, a necessary hot meal on a big holiday.
Our dinner is served on Christmas Day at the Congregational Church in Manchester Village. There is one serving at 2:30 p.m. There is no charge. Guests receive a traditional meal including turkey and dressing, ham, potatoes, vegetables and dessert. For the past three years, we have even been able to provide hors d’oeuvres for early arrivals. No reservations are necessary; show up a little early to ensure a good seat. Groups of four or more should be sure to show up early in order to be able to sit at the same table.
