Christmas Dinner is something that most people look forward to all year long. But, for some, it can be a lonely day if there is no one to celebrate with. The SOS Marysville Food Bank is offering residents an option to spend Christmas with others as they will be hosting the annual Community Christmas Dinner to be held at Marysville United Methodist Church on Huron Boulevard. Last year, over 1,300 people were served and the organization is expecting similar numbers this year. Volunteers begin preparing the meal at 6 a.m. on Christmas morning and work until late afternoon. Dinners are available for delivery and takeout also. Carmella Burns’ team of volunteers with the food bank are especially concerned with the area’s senior citizens and those who are living in shelters, making sure that meals are delivered to them. Burns started the event with her family about six years ago and has watched it grow into a tradition that engages a host of community groups from law enforcement to robotics teams to churches, as volunteers prepare, serve, and deliver the meals. For Ms. Burns, the highlight is seeing the people donating their time. Volunteers often enjoy it so much that they are hesitant to leave, even on Christmas. The dinner is ham or turkey with all the side dishes and dessert. To volunteer or to reserve a dinner, call 810-364-6333.
