November 16th

It’s starting to look a lot like Christmas! The fifth annual Christmas Day Feast, Tuesday, Dec. 25, 1 p.m. at the Collingwood Curling Club is coming together with tremendous support from local business owners, individual supporters and over 100 volunteers.

Chairperson, Marg Scheben-Edey said, “We are grateful for the continuing support of the community to make this event possible.” The Christmas spirit is alive and well in Collingwood!

The planning committee, made up of 12 elves, has been hard at work since September planning logistics, fund raising, arranging rentals, food, entertainment and organizing volunteers.

Community partners to date include The Rotary Club of Collingwood, Collingwood Curling Club, Men with Knives Catering, Chef Simon Bailey, Northwinds Brewhouse and Kitchen, Giffen’s Country Market, Tim Hortons, Sobeys, Eggsmart, The Print Shop, Meridian, Community Connection and Ace Cabs. Many more have provided financial support and resources to make this event memorable for all who attend!

The event is free and all are welcome to the Community Feast! Whether new to town or far away from family, Christmas can be a lonely time, and for others, financial or emotional barriers may make it difficult to put together a Christmas dinner. Some people simply want to enjoy holiday cheer with others in the community. The event is non-denominational and open to all ages. Reservations are required as we are limited to 140 seats, and can be made by calling 211 (Community Connection).

The main attraction, “the feast” will include a home-style meal with all the trimmings, seasonal entertainment, activities for children and a little something for the adults to take home.
