KAMLOOPS — New Life Community Kamloop's annual Christmas dinner takes place this afternoon.

Executive Director Stan Deuck says they're expecting to serve up to 150 people at today's event that will include all the trimmings.

"It's a full sit-down turkey dinner with stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, dessert, the whole deal. It's a chance for a lot of these people to enjoy the time with family and friends and enjoy the Christmas season."

Dueck says every attendee will leave with a gift bag stuffed with socks, gloves, coffee mugs and other everyday items.

New Life Community Kamloops has been hosting its Christmas dinner for more than 30 years.

Today's sit-down gets underway at 1 p.m.
