Organizers provide this meal year after year so community members who don't have to be alone on Christmas, and people will have a nice holiday meal cooked for them with turkey, ham, mashed potatoes, stuffing, green bean casserole, rolls and desserts. 

This free event is open to the public for people of all ages and affiliations. Live music by Mesha Ministries will add to the festive atmosphere. 

Lake Fellowship Ministries and Men of Purpose make this event possible, with the help of the Lake-Osceola State Bank, Baldwin Lions Club, Bread of Life Food Pantry and St. Ann Senior Center for providing a place for the meal.
