For the past six years a family tradition has been serving a Christmas meal to the residents of the area.
The Annual Community Christmas Dinner at Victory Lutheran Brethren Church has become an area tradition with a growing number of guests each year.
“With this being our seventh year I guess things get easier,” said Kris Meidinger, organizer of the event. “We’ve got it down so things flow pretty good.”
A free Christmas Day dinner will again be held at the Fellowship Hall of the Zion United Church of Christ in Medina. The event which has become a tradition in the Medina community is open to all area residents who would otherwise be alone for Christmas dinner.
Victory Lutheran Brethren Church will host its 7th Annual Community Christmas Dinner from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Sunday. A complete meal of turkey, potatoes, gravy and dessert will be served. For reservations to attend this dinner at Victory Lutheran, call Kris Meidinger at 252-4748. Meals will also be delivered to shut-ins who call 252-4748 with reservations before noon Saturday. They may also call the church office at 251-1570 before 3 p.m. today.
BEMIDJI, Minn. — The cost of feeding turkey dinner to 10 friends and relatives today inched up this year, but farm advocates say it’s still a bargain.
In the annual American Farm Bureau Federation survey, the cost of Thanksgiving dinner with all the trimmings was put at $43.47, up 1.3 percent from 2009. But it’s also $1.14 cheaper than what shoppers paid two years ago, at $44.61.

It will soon be 20 Thanksgivings since Fritz Buegel decided the holiday should be about sharing the traditional dinner with others.
Since then, the Community Thanksgiving Dinner in Jamestown has grown way beyond his expectations. He started with the idea of providing dinner for those who were alone or passing through town on the holiday. But as his widow, Judy, said the dinner was also about community.
A candlelight spaghetti dinner is from 5 to 7 p.m. Sunday at Atonement Lutheran Church. The cost is $7 for adults, $3 for students and free for preschool students. Tickets may be purchased at the door.
The sponsor of the dinner is Atonement Youth. Proceeds will be used for youth activities throughout the year. Atonement is located at 1009 12th Ave. N.E., Jamestown. For more information, call 252-4208.
The Jamestown Public Schools Music Boosters Valentines Dinner, which will be held on Feb. 14 at Trinity Lutheran Church, will feature a lineup of student musicians from Jamestown High School and Middle School.
The third annual Jamestown Public Schools Music Boosters’ Valentine Dinner Feb. 14 continues with its Hollywood theme, “Lights, Camera, Music.”
Although it’s held on Valentine’s Day, Theresa McMillan, president of the music boosters board, said the theme isn’t focused on romance or couples. The fundraising dinner, with its student entertainment, is open to everyone.
