HAVRE, Mont. (NMB) – Last Friday’s free Havre Community Christmas Dinner may have been a bit different than normal, but it was still a success.
Havre Eagles Club Manager Tom Farnham says between take-outs and deliveries, 604 total turkey dinners were provided to members of the community. This is down about 200 meals from 2019.
Of the 604 meals served, 359 were provided via delivery, while the rest were take-outs.
Farnham says he is grateful for the roughly 50 volunteers that helped make sure this annual event went on, even amidst a pandemic.
“I appreciate everybody that offered, stepped up to the plate, made it happen. All the different groups that donate, and we’ve just got a great community, that’s my bottom line.”
All extra food has been donated to the Feed My Sheep Community Soup Kitchen.
Farnham says he intends for next year’s Christmas dinner to return to normal, with people able to eat and conversate inside the Eagles Club.
“We want to go back to the social gathering. Hopefully we’ll be back to our normal lifestyle within a year.”
