A Family Christmas Celebration event is set for Saturday, Dec. 5 from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. at Community Praise Tabernacle, 3126 Stanislaus St., Riverbank. This free sit down dinner is for families and people in the community to celebrate the Christmas season with fellowship. There will be food, Christmas cheer, carols, and ‘candy rain’ for the kids every 30 minutes. Jim Viera, owner of Grillin and Chillin BBQ, will provide the meal.
“We have never done anything like this,” said Eva Nash, event organizer. “In my heart I want to do something special.
“We want to make the community a better place where you see people and bring good cheer.”
