50 members of the South Delta Weekend Family and Peer Support Group for special needs adults and Rotarians celebrated Christmas with the 19th annual dinner hosted by Ladner Rotary. The eagerly anticipated dinner always gives a lift to those who can find the festive season somewhat lonely. Santa Claus was on hand to wish everybody a Merry Christmas and hand out gifts.

From picking up food supplies and equipment, peeling spuds and carrots, making salads and punch, cooking and bringing turkey and ham, providing dessert, laying multiple tables, serving and cleaning up, a team of Ladner Rotary volunteers achieved the multi-phase Christmas dinner. Special thank you to Arthur and Geraldine Birk, who support the Group throughout the year and on this occasion, plus Mike and Kathy Storey, for making this annual dinner possible for all of us.
