St. Thomas More will be holding its Community Christmas Dinner in a drive thru format again this year.

This year will mark the 10th year of the Community Christmas Dinner. Pastor Michael Ide says the event started when a volunteer wanted to help with a Thanksgiving dinner, but didn’t need any more volunteers .
