With the countdown to Christmas underway, Copper Point Golf Club is readying its clubhouse for a massive feast the tenth annual Feed the Town this Sunday, December 1st.

We wanted to support the community and people who live here, and make sure that everyone has the option to have Christmas dinner, said Brian Schaal, general manager of Copper Point

Golf Club.

Marking its decade-long milestone, the club has prepared enough turkey, with all the trimmings, to give the valley a festive meal, asking only for a donation to the food bank in exchange.

In its earlier years, Mr. Schaal said that there was a misconception that Feed the Town was an event for the needy, but it is in fact for everybody to attend.

We thought, Why dont we support the whole town, create Christmas dinner for everybody and support the food bank, he said.

The clubhouse is expecting between 1,000 and 1,200 guests to take advantage of the meal.

He said Santa normally makes an appearance at the event, and that four RCMP officers will be standing guard in the Red Serge uniform.

Feed the Town begins at noon and wraps up around 6 p.m.
