BIRMINGHAM

The families of Barb and Carroll Unkrich and Pat and Hugh Shaw are planning the annual free Christmas Day dinner at the Birmingham United Methodist Church.

The annual dinner was started 10 years ago for anyone spending Christmas alone. It outgrew the Birmingham Lions Building and was moved to the church.

No reservations are necessary, and everyone is welcome.

The Birmingham Homecoming Committee’s soup supper had a fair-sized crowd, but there was a larger crowd of kids to see Santa.

Each child received a bag with candy and a stuffed toy animal.
