Hamming it up in the kitchen.

Seniors Christmas Dinner

Royal Purple Society and Smithers Elks serve at half-century-old tradition

The evening of Dec. 12 proved to be another successful Senior Christmas dinner organized jointly by the Royal Purple Society and the Smithers Elks.

With the help of extraordinary community volunteers, this event has taken place for over 50 years. Originally held at the Elks Hall, the venue has since moved to the Smithers Legion.

Greeted at the door with a corsage donated by Fink’s Sawmill Ltd. for the ladies and a boutonniere donated by Paul’s Bakery for the men, the guests were treated to a turkey and ham dinner with all the traditional fixings followed by a choice of cake or a dish of ice cream for dessert. BV Wholesale supported the evening by food contribution. The event wrapped up with songs of holiday cheer sang by a local junior choir.

At then end of the evening, three lucky guests, identified by a special colour in their corsage/boutonniere, received one of the beautiful table center pieces donated by Larkspur.
