TAYLOR, B.C. – The setting of tables and cooking of turkeys is almost complete as the Kin Club of Fort St. John gets ready to host their biggest event of the year tonight.
The Kin Club’s 34th Annual Seniors Dinner is taking place at the Taylor Community Hall tonight. The dinner is being held with support from Save-On-Foods, and will feed 230 seniors at the dinner tonight. Kin Club President Colin Budd says that volunteers have been busy since 7:00 this morning preparing the dinner. There will be eight trays of ham, eight trays of turkey, 250 lbs. of potatoes, 120 cups of gravy, along with countless numbers of cabbages, carrots, and other vegetables.
In addition to the contribution from Save-On, Progress Energy also donated money to decorate the hall, while Canadian Tire and Dunvegan Gardens provided an ornamented Christmas Tree.
The dinner is set to begin at 5:30 this evening at the Taylor Hall, and will feature singing from Fort St. John councillor Bruce Christiansen and his daughter, as well as a presentation by the Move dance company.
