A long standing tradition in Sylvan Lake is set to return for another year.

The 16th annual Sylvan Lake Community Partners’ Association Community Christmas Dinner is set to take place this Saturday, December 24 from 4-7 p.m. at the Community Centre.

The free community dinner features a special guest visit from Santa Claus himself. In addition, donations from the community allow everyone in attendance to receive a gift.

Each year Community Partners’ places an Angel Tree at a local business in Sylvan Lake where shoppers are able to take a tag from the tree with the age and gender of some one they wish to sponsor. Sponsors purchase a gift and place it back under the tree for some one to open on Christmas Eve. Donations included gifts for children, adults and seniors allowing for something for everyone.

The event is made possible by a host of volunteers from the community who donate time in preparation of gifted food.

Jen Baliant, events co-ordinator for Community Partners’ explained the dinner is a great option for any one who doesn’t have plans this Christmas Eve.

“If anyone is far from their family or wants to join in on the festivities it really is a great community event,” said Baliant.
