|Santa was in the house. We are very fortunate to have volunteer Dan's help serving coffee and a bonus is that he can pass for Santa all year long.|
With both Christmas and New Year's Day arriving on a Wednesday this year, today was our last community meal of 2013.
We made the most of our last meal together by celebrating with mini-Christmas trees on the tables, live holiday music courtesy of Sandy our volunteer piano player and Santa Claus in the dining room thanks to Dan our longtime coffee server who is perfect for the part - he sports a real white beard all year long.
|We had a full dining room during most of our two hour service. In the end we served 354 meals.|
There were a variety of entrees served today from barbecue ribs and fried chicken to sweet and sour shrimp and baked salmon. Every entree came with soup, salad and dessert. The latter was glazed marble cake made by our dessert expert Cheryl.

The guests were very appreciative and said that they are looking forward to joining us again on Wednesdays at Trinity Episcopal in the New Year.
We served 354 meals today and offered our guests a to-go gift as they left, a dry-cured salami courtesy of Olympic Provisions. Needless to say, the gourmet treat was a welcome surprise and a delicious way to finish off the year.
