Here are a few pictures from our Christmas Meal on Dec 11, 2012. This year, we held two Christmas dinners, to try to accommodate everyone comfortably and avoid long lineups. Dec 11 was primarily aimed at families with children and Dec 18 was open to everyone. On Dec 11, thirty-four children attended, aged 8 months to 16 years. We had gifts for every child, and a very special visitor to hand them out: Santa Claus. Wonderful food (turkey with all the trimmins plus fresh baked mince tarts and ice cream), music courtesy of Jackie, Dalton, Trinity and Kris-Ann. A good time had by all.
Sorry, no pictures of Santa -- camera batteries ran out.

|The Events Committee did a great job of the tables: beautiful centerpieces, red and green tablecloths, festive napkins and an orange and candy cane for everyone. Oranges and candy canes donated by the Richmond Food Bank.|
