Long Creek Provides Annual Community Christmas Dinner

January 30, 2018 | Leland Spencer

The Long Creek Church held their annual Christmas fellowship dinner on Dec. 16, 2017, for the Long Creek community in Oregon. The event was well-attended, and extra seats had to be tucked into the corners. According to the mathematical wizards and bean counters, 69 people came to enjoy the meal. If one subtracts the helpers who came from the Walla Walla, Wash., area to provide the inspirational Christmas music singalong and other valuable assistance, 55 eager Christmas celebrants from the local area came to fellowship together.

The food and music provided for the event was excellent, and reports indicate everyone had a wonderful time. The Christmas fellowship event fostered a pleasant Christian atmosphere for the area. 

Sherry Schultz coordinated the planning and worked long and hard to bring it all together. The extended Morris family provided a large portion of the food, and Pearl Spencer decorated the fellowship hall. Many others contributed labor and printing for the gift pamphlet that was handed out along with homemade soap and a jar of instant cookie mix to take home, stir and bake.
