There’s a chance that there won’t be a community Christmas dinner in Thompson this year.
Harlie Pruder, who has helped organize the meal fo the past few years, spoke to Arctic Radio News and said that the dinner is for everyone in the community. She said that it’s a place for people to gather together when they might have been spending Christmas alone, and that it gives newcomers a chance to learn about Canadian Christmas traditions.
Pruder added her family is proud to have been able to host the dinner for the past five years, but that they won’t be organizing this years event and someone else needs to step up.
To learn more about the dinner and how you can help, tune in to 102.9 CHTM this afternoon at 12:40pm and 5:10pm for Thompson Today.
