My wife Shareyl and I had the privilege of serving Christmas Dinner “For the community by the community” at Santo’s Restaurant on Christmas day to all that wanted to attend.
The dinner was free of charge and we had a great time. What a way to spend Christmas day! I would like to take the time to say thank you to all the people that donated food and their time to prepare such a great meal. It makes Shareyl and I very happy to know that we live in a community where people think about others during the Christmas season.
We served about 35 people that evening, some locals and some that were travelling and on their way home to Vancouver Island, who were amazed that a restaurant was actually open on Christmas day.
You can imagine their surprise when they came in and were offered a full turkey and ham dinner with all the trimmings and dessert. (Apple or pumpkin pie served by Tracey’s children)
We want to say thank you to the owners Tracey and her husband (who worked very hard in the kitchen) Ian.
It was a great representation of the people who live in Princeton. Caring and hospitable—I am sure the people who were travelling felt that.
Once again, thanks to all those who were involved in this endeavour. It was a great success and a heartwarming experience for Shareyl and I.
Keep up the good work Santo’s!
