The Drumheller Mail - - SPORTS - Pa­trick Ko­lafa

Af­ter nearly 40 years, the an­nual Santa’s Christ­mas Din­ner again proved to be a huge suc­cess.

The din­ner, held at Yavis Fam­ily Restau­rant from noon to 3 p.m. on Christ­mas Day was a great ex­pe­ri­ence by those who en­joyed the din­ner, as well as the vol­un­teers who made it a re­al­ity.

Dar­ryl and Toni Dro­homer­ski en­joyed their first Drumheller Santa’s Christ­mas Din­ner as vol­un­teers.

“We loved it and al­ready know we want to do it again next year,” said Dar­ryl. “It was so great to in­ter­act with so many great peo­ple and great new faces from around the com­mu­nity, and to see the joy in ev­ery­one eyes and thank­ful­ness from peo­ple that par­took in the event.”

This year 39 vol­un­teers worked hard to put on the an­nual event, a tra­di­tional tur­key din­ner with all the fix­ings, as well as dessert.

This year they served 485 din­ners. This in­cludes many that vol­un­teers de­liv­ered to homes through­out the val­ley. They also pro­vided rides to those in need of trans­porta­tion. The most im­por­tant in­gre­di­ent of the meal, of course, was the great com­pany, which keeps them com­ing back.
