OAKHURST – The community is invited to a free Christmas dinner on Friday, Dec. 23 from 4 – 8 p.m. at the Oakhurst Community Center. Organizers promise food, fun, and fellowship, throughout an afternoon and evening that is perfect for the whole family.
This will be the eighth year for The Outpouring, a free community feast open to everyone. Individuals and groups may attend or participate by providing food, decorations or both. Rebecca Kohout is again coordinating the event with her family. They’ve been working with Outpouring for six years.
Families, seniors and anyone who wants to spend the evening together en masse is encouraged to come out for what always shapes up to be a delicious and abundant meal. Tables are festively decorated, DJ Fig will be on-hand to provide musical entertainment, and it’s not uncommon for a certain red-suited gentleman popular throughout the season to stop by with gifts.
Dinner generally includes ham, turkey, stuffing, potatoes, gravy, cranberries, veggies, dessert and other ingredients of fine family-style dining. The home-cooked meal is provided by an all-volunteer culinary force of nature in the form of individuals acting together for a common cause.
Anyone interested in participating in the Outpouring, either by making a donation or volunteering time, is encouraged to contact Rebecca at (559) 676-9101 or via email firstname.lastname@example.org.
