MANCHESTER - Volunteers and donations are being sought for the Annual Community Christmas Dinner.

This is a grass roots effort. Everything is donated, including food, labor, the church kitchen and dining area and all of the accessories it takes to feed over 100 people. The dinner is available to everyone. No reservations are required and there is no charge for the meal. All donated proceeds go directly to the dinner, additional funds are carried over to the next year.

The dinner will be held on Christmas Day at 2:30 p.m. at the First Congregational Church in Manchester Village, across from the Equinox Hotel.

Those who wish to make a donation may send a check to: The Community Christmas Dinner, PO BX 595 Manchester Center, VT 05255.
