"At the dinner table, if you can't think of anything to say, sit quietly. Don't throw rolls, or chew on your napkin."

-Mason Cooley

I'm sitting here thinking about the Christmas Community Meal. While I sit and think about the Christmas Community Meal, the song , "It's Christmas Time" is simultaneously occupying my thoughts. Lucky for you, my brain has now altered the words of this melodic tune to, "It's Dinner Time" as it continues to occupy space and time within my thoughts. I can now only imagine your endless thanks for having been shared this unimportant bit of information.
You're welcome! Not to worry, what is important, is that we have a CHRISTMAS COMMUNITY MEAL in 10 days!

The Elkhorn Chamber has made it an annual tradition to welcome everyone to our dinner table! We realize this year we are simply offering the meal, sans table, however we know there is great value and appreciation for this too! We look forward to welcoming those who will take their meal curbside and we greatly anticipate being able to provide a delicious meal to those who will remain home for the holidays.

Please take a minute to think who may benefit from this piece of information. Not the useless part about the song stuck in my head, but the fact that meals will be available for pick-up and delivery on Christmas Day from 11am - 1pm. This is our last big hoorah to foster togetherness before we flip the calendar and start anew. We appreciate your assistance to spread the word and we thank you in advance for your efforts!

Now, on to "Dinner Time..."
