Church dinner teaches true meaning of Christmas
By John TorgrimsonMonday, December 31, 2001The Christmas spirit was in full evidence in Preston on Christmas Day at St. Columbans Catholic Church Parish Hall as approximately 50 people turned out for the churchs third annual Christmas Dinner.

The dinner offers many who might be alone during the holidays the chance to be together with others, sharing a festive dinner with all the trimmings. People came from the surrounding towns of Spring Valley, Fountain, Harmony, and Chatfield, as well as from Preston.

The annual dinner, which started in 1999, is the brainchild of five people: Pat and JoAnne Fitzgerald, Jerry and Ellen Scheevel and Lois Barlow.

We used to volunteer at Christmas time with other organizations, like the Salvation Army, JoAnne Fitzgerald explained. But they had plenty of volunteers. So we thought wouldnt it be great to do something locally.

According to Ellen Scheevel, the dinner has grown each year, and with it the response from others wanting to help with the event.

We have received tremendous volunteer support and many donations for the dinner, Scheevel said.

While JoAnne, Lois and Ellen filled plates, Pat Fitzgerald and Jerry Scheevel were busy delivering takeout dinners to 15 residences in Preston.

As people moved through the serving line filling their plates, Father Tom Loomis praised the Christmas dinner.

Look what five people have started, he said, as he cast his arm across the room. It has really become a wonderful community event.
