In the spirit of giving, the public is invited to a free holiday meal on Christmas Day.
The last Community Fellowship Dinner of the season is Sunday from 12:30-3:30 p.m. at the Hermiston Senior Center, 435 W. Orchard Ave., located on the former Umatilla County Fairgrounds. In addition to the on-site meal, delivery service and to-go meals can be packaged for pick-up for those unable to attend the dinner.
The menu features ham and all the fixings. There is a limited amount of turkey for those that can’t eat ham. Also, there will be cookies and pies.
Volunteer shifts are still available during the meal. People can help with everything from meal set-up and serving to greeting and meal delivery service.
While the meals are free, financial donations to help with the Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners can be given to local churches, dropped in a donation basket at the meal or mailed to CFD, P.O. Box 1551, Hermiston, OR 97838.
For meal delivery service or a ride, call 541-303-5886. On Christmas Day, call the senior center at 541-567-3582 or 541-303-5886.
