Community Harvest plans Noel Dinner

Community Harvest, a local nonprofit organization, will host its 12th annual Noel Dinner Thursday, Dec. 25 at St. Martha’s Church on Route 1 in Kennebunk.

The Noel Dinner is a complimentary Christmas Day dinner for community members to come together and share food and fellowship.

Dinner will be prepared by chairman Eva Barnfather and a team of volunteers and served at 2 p.m. Reservations, while not necessary, can be made in advance by calling 967-1911 and leaving a message with name and the number of guests.

In 2013, the Noel Dinner served nearly 100 people, including guests. and volunteers. The event has become a tradition for many families in the area, and is a wonderful way for neighbors to get to know each other while enjoying a delicious Christmas meal.

“The Noel Dinner signifies the gift of giving to our community,” said Barnfather. “We want every one of our neighbors to have a place to spend this wonderful holiday, and look forward to welcoming them into this year’s event. Whether you are spending the holiday by yourself or with family and friends, we invite everyone to come and take part in Community Harvest’s tradition of Christmas.”
